The emts should be charged with child endangerment, and child neglect, and also charged with animal cruelty... these trained individuals knowing the child was left alone, and that the dogs escaped and not doing nothing......

Maybe they were worried about saving the guys life? Had he died or suffered more serious injury because they looked for a babysitter or the dogs she'd be whining about that too.

Wake up call, Wake up call , Wake up, thats what I say to the emts. Maybe you tried to save a life. In the mean time you almost lost another. What where you thinking when your drove away and left the 10 year old. Or where you thinking. Animal control could have should have been called. like i said wake up.

I took the time to read this story and took the time to view the mothers statement. It must have been a long three hours not knowing where her son was and on the other hand it must have been hard not knowing how her father was doing. You see in this story as I read the MOTHER had to take alot of decisions into consideration. Where is my son, Is My father ok where do I start. See in all this confusion and lost time. All the emts had to do was to make a call. Grandfather was having a possibe heart attack or stroke his decision to leave the boy could have been over ruled by the emts. And they could have had easily made a call to help this little boy. Can you imagine the decison left in this little boys hands. All alone, Grandfather taken away, Mom could have been miles from him. Where should I turn and what should be done. I am contacting some of my frinds and their friends and I think Justice should be done. Not only to the MOTHER, The Grandfather, And to the family for pain they suffered. Can you imagine if you were 10 years old and you were left in this position. Fighting the tears back Fighting to save his dog in 110 degeree weather, The sweat the tears and the determination, Only to find that your loving friend he had his pals he lovd and cherished had died of the 110 degree heat. Not knowing how his Grandfather was. Not knowing where his mother was. And all this could have been taken care of by one phone Call.Yes just one phone call. I am sorry but I agree EMTS UNDER FIRE IN HOME ALONE CASE WILL BE ADDRESSED AND WILL NOT BE FORGOTTEN.
