Carla Boykins wasn't feeling well, so her boyfriend called 911 for an ambulance to take her to the hospital. After they got there, a paramedic told her that a second ambulance had been accidentally sent to her Norfolk, Virginia, home after they left, along with police and firefighters. When no one answered a knock on the door, they broke the door in to make sure no one inside needed help. The city refuses to pay for the damages to the door.
