EAST LIVERPOOL, Ohio (AP) – An Ohio police officer says he and a partner drove a barely breathing woman that later died to a hospital because an ambulance crew said it was coming but didn’t show up.
The woman who had suffered a brain aneurysm died the next day at a Pittsburgh hospital. It’s not clear if the delay impacted the woman’s chances of survival.READ MORE: Last-Second Shot From Virginia's Jayden Gardner Sinks Pitt

Talbott says two ambulance services said they didn’t have anyone available, and they waited several minutes for a third ambulance that said it was coming. He says a dispatcher called the third ambulance service back and was told they no longer could make it.
The officer says he’s upset no ambulance responded.MORE NEWS: Homeowner Convicted In Killings Of 2 Teens Smoking Marijuana Inside His Garage
