Hi Sharon,
Could you shed some light on this? Did this happen in the common house or in a private unit?
Also, did you have a crimewatch at the time?

We also had an emergency early on and a baby died. The need to call 911
immediately was impressed upon us.

This was a SIDS death of a 5-day-old infant and didn't happened in the commonhouse but could have. What we were made aware of is the need to have instant access to a phone to call 911. While having a phone didn't help this baby, knowing that 911 was called and an ambulance there in 5 minutes assured us that we had done all we could for Isaac. If we had had to go look for a phone or even shout out who has a phone and explain why we needed 911, it would have been at least 5 minutes longer and we would not have that assurance.
