After a teenager was shot and killed at a party in June, an Albuquerque firefighter who answered the emergency call hung up on a friend who was trying frantically to save his life.
Jaydon Chavez-Silver, 17, had just arrived at the party when someone opened fire. As he lay dying, a female friend began CPR and called 9-1-1, KRQE reports.
“I’m doing CPR as we speak. I’m keeping him alive,” the young female caller can be heard saying. “Just stay with me, okay, okay. There you go. Good job Jaydon.”
Firefighter Matthew Sanchez was working at the dispatch center that night, can be heard asking twice whether the boy was breathing.
“He’s barely breathing. How many times do I have to f***ing tell you?” the girl angrily responds.
At that point, Sanchez says, “OK, you know what ma’am, you could deal with it yourself. I’m not gonna deal with this, okay?”
The caller can be heard begging him to help her before the line goes dead.
Albuquerque Fire Chief David Downey said an internal investigation was launched. Sanchez has been pulled from the dispatch center and put on administrative duty.
“They’re heartbroken,” a spokesman for Jaydon’s family told KRQE. “They’re beyond belief about what happened, but at the same time they want to focus on catching the people who did this.”
The station reports no arrests have been made in the shooting yet. Paramedics had already been dispatched when Sanchez hung up on the caller, and Jaydon’s family is offering a reward for any information leading to the apprehension of the shooter, KRQE reports.

Conservative CNN contributor Rick Santorum was called out on Sunday after he seemed to be uneducated about President Donald Trump's attempt to have Ukraine investigate Joe Biden and his son.
During a panel discussion on CNN, Republican contributor Mia Love said that Trump's communication with Ukraine was not "appropriate" if he was looking for campaign help.
"There is no equivalence between Joe Biden and Hunter Biden and what this president has allegedly done," Democratic consultant Karen Finney noted. "The things that were investigated against the Bidens [were] shelved, totally debunked."
Tapper smacks Mnuchin with Trump kids’ international business deals after attack on Biden son
In a fairly contentious interview with Steve Mnuchin, CNN host Jake Tapper pointed out how Donald Trump's children -- Don Jr., Ivanka and Eric -- have been using their father's name to swing international deals after the Treasury secretary accused former Vice President Joe Biden's son of doing the same.
Mnuchin first dismissed reporting by the Washington Post and the conservative Wall Street Journal that Donald Trump was withholding Ukraine funding in an effort to get dirt on Biden and his son -- saying neither newspaper could be trusted -- he then complained to the CNN host about having to spend seven and a half minutes talking about Trump's Ukraine scandal.
