Why E911? Real-Life Stories Man Found Dead After Phone Glitch Confuses 911 UPDATED - Monday April 24, :07am eVideo: 911 Error Blamed on Computer Glitch Gaithersburg (AP) - An immigrant from Bangladesh was found dead at his Gaithersburg office this week, hours after he called 911 saying he needed medical help. The Washington Post reports X phoned for help 40 minutes after he started work at a medical company in Gaithersburg on Tuesday - but almost 10 hours passed before somebody found him lying on the floor of his office. Police said an apparent phone glitch sent medical personnel to the wrong address - and, finding nothing amiss, they believed the call was unfounded.
