Albuquerque firefighter Matthew Sanchez has resigned after snapping at a 911 caller trying to keep a teenage shooting victim alive. Sanchez was working as an emergency dispatcher at the time. The caller got angry when he repeatedly asked if the boy was breathing. "He is barely breathing, how many times do I have to (expletive) tell you?" she said. "OK, you know what ma'am? You can deal with it yourself. I am not going to deal with this, OK?" Sanchez responded. Then he apparently hung up the phone. The victim later died.
