DALLAS (AP) – A woman calling 911 to summon an ambulance for a man who later died of Ebola described him as vomiting at a Dallas apartment.
Dallas officials have released the Sept. 28 call by Youngor Jallah, whose mother dated Thomas Eric Duncan.
Jallah doesn’t identify herself, but tells a dispatcher that “my daddy is throwing up” and “he’s got a fever.”
Jallah told The Associated Press that she made the call and referred to Duncan as “daddy” because he was in a relationship with her mother. Jallah is not related to Duncan, who died last Wednesday at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital.
Dallas Fire-Rescue Lt. Joel Lavender said Tuesday that the caller had a thick accent and the dispatcher, who’s heard asking her to repeat details, did a good job.
