A Cleveland dispatcher, Jasmin Thomas, was suspended for falling asleep at work. The thing is that not only did Thomas fall asleep on the job but she fell asleep in the middle of a 911 emergency phone call.
Audio recordings also show that Jasmin Thomas took 10 seconds to answer one call and then 40 seconds to transfer the emergency call to firefighters about a burning stove. Making things worse for her situation, photos have surfaced showing Thomas asleep at her desk on several different occasions.
Despite her suspension, police have explained, "she's a single Mom. She's going to college full time and she's working... 40, 50, sometimes 60 hours a week up there..."
