A Florida sheriff's deputy has been fired after an investigation showed that he ignored a 911 call from a woman having a heart attack so that he could finish his pizza lunch. An Internal Affairs report showed that deputy Yvan Fernandez acknowledged the emergency call from dispatch before returning to his pizza, even though he was not on an official meal break. He reportedly went back to eating his lunch before passing off the call to another deputy 30 minutes later. Gwendolyn Minnis, 48, was unconscious when police finally arrived and later died. "Could we have saved this lady? I'll never be able to answer that question," Lee County Sheriff Mike Scott said. read more
