A man, who wasn't identified by local media, died after he collapsed in the Albuquerque Veterans Affairs hospital cafeteria and had to wait 30 minutes for an ambulance to arrive. The cafeteria is just 500 yards from the hospital's emergency room, which is where the ambulance took him. Officials say hospital staff followed procedures when they called 911 rather than take the man to the ER themselves.
