It was back in June when cops were chasing an SUV that jumped a curb and ran down and killed 4-year-old Ariel Russo. New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg ordered an investigation. The results are in. The findings: there was no technical problem with the city's troubled 911 system. An EMS dispatcher, who was on the phone in violation of regulations, delayed sending paramedics for four minutes. Ariel's mother, Sophia, says the report was hard to read. Now she knows human error caused for a delay in help. She wonders, had the dispatcher done her job, would her daughter still be alive? A civil suit is pending. Russo now asking the Brooklyn DA to determine whether there should be criminal charges, too. Covering for 1010 WINS.
