Dr. Oz: Is the 911 System Effective?

Dr. Oz talked to Today Show investigative correspondent Jeff Rossen, who investigated the 911 system. In the pretaped package, Jeff Rossen played real audio from a 911 call where a woman was trapped in a car that she’d accidentally driven into the lake. She knew right where she was, but the 911 dispatchers couldn’t find her on their map. It took first responders nearly 20 minutes to get to her. The woman did not make it that long.
