A Detroit paramedic is facing charges for misdemeanor willful neglect of duty after failing to follow a dispatcher's pleas to go to the scene where an 8-month-old baby had stopped breathing. "I'm going to need you to make that scene. You're going to have to make patient contact," the dispatcher instructed the paramedic, after finding out she had parked around the corner from the house and did not intend to go inside.
