DC lieutenant retires amid accusations of not helping dying man

Lt. Kellene Davis was placed on administrative leave and it is unclear if she will face disciplinary action


WASHINGTON — According to sources, D.C. Fire Lt. Kellene Davis plans to retire following accusations that her fire station stood by and did nothing as an elderly man died of a heart attack. She had been placed on desk duty this week.

Cecil Mills, 77, passed away on Saturday after suffering cardiac arrest outside Engine 26 in Northeast Washington.

Witness Marion Barrow works near this now infamous fire station and says that last Saturday concerned citizens rushed across the street to ask a firefighter for help after Mills collapsed near the sidewalk. But no one from the station would come.

Then, dial 301-652-1000 for Bethesda Chevy Chase Rescue Squad and hope you're within their first due area in DC. And, you better hope they take you to a hospital outside DC. What a pit!
