Two 911 Dispatchers Are Reprimanded

Two Paintsville-Johnson County 9-1-1 dispatchers were reprimanded after the mayor says they gave a sheriff's deputy the wrong address to an assault call last month.

Paintsville Mayor Bob Porter says the mistake delayed the response time.

The alleged victim died a few weeks later from his injuries.

Porter says the mistake is under investigation and they're making changes to make sure it doesn't happen again.
