Every minute in the US, an ambulance gets turned away from an emergency room because hospitals are simply too full. In Los Angeles, where the wait time in some ERs is as long as 48 hours, the entire 911 system is being dragged down in ways that are alarming. This documentary reveals the shocking reality of LAFD's Station 65 - where paramedics run themselves ragged because 911 has become the speed dial for a collapsing health care system. And sometimes the consequences are deadly. By Julie Winokur.
