Two D.C. firefighters are accused of putting an emergency call on hold so they could pick up a bite to eat.
Sources familiar with the investigation say on Friday afternoon the two got a call for a woman suffering from chest pain at an office in Northeast.
ALS is considered a priority call. But according to an account in a D.C. Fire and EMS report, the two firefighters assigned to Ambulance 3 said it had been a busy day and they were hungry and fatigued and wanted to stop for food.
