CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - The next time you call 9-1-1 your call could be answered by one of two Cleveland dispatchers who are making headlines for botching calls.
A Cleveland police dispatcher is fighting to get her job back even though she mishandled a call about a murder. Another dispatcher who fell asleep during a call just quit.
Paula Barksdale snoozed during a call.
Other times, bosses wrote her up repeatedly for messing up calls--taking wrong addresses, not getting names, and giving cops wrong information.
The city took steps to fire her but Barksdale just resigned.
Now, a hearing was just held for Donna Yousef asking an arbitrator to force the city to hire her back.
Yousef was fired after she blew off a call about a man beaten and dumped in a truck.
The man was later found dead, his body burned to small pieces.
