Witnesses say that an initial 911 call was made at about 11 p. m. about a man who had fallen at the well-kept high-rise just east of Yonge Street.45 minutes was too long.
A security officer with Intelligarde reported back to her dispatcher that she was worried about Mr. Hearst’s condition, a source told the Post.
The dispatcher called 911 at 11:19 p. m.; he reported the victim was “blue in the face” and connected the operator with the security guard on the scene, the source said.
At 11:36 p. m., the dispatcher called 911 again: “I’m calling to let you know that he has no pulse.” Emergency officials were tending to Mr. Hearst at about 11:45 p. m., the source said.
But EMS was available after about 9 minutes. They were waiting for police. Where were police? Doing other things.
