    A teen in Albuquerque, New Mexico, called 9-1-1 when their friend was shot.

    The 9-1-1 dispatcher kept the caller on the line while she waited for help to arrive.

    The dispatcher repeatedly asked the caller if the shooting victim was breathing, and the teenager got frustrated with having to answer the same question over and over again while her friend lay dying, so she swore at the dispatcher.

    That's when the dispatcher told the caller she could 'deal with it herself" and hung up on the teen in need of help.

    The victim ended up dying.
