Ga. cops didn't put students' 911 call on hold

Students claim they were 'put on hold' when trying to contact police during a carjacking; officers claim the call was indecipherable


Associated Press

ATLANTA — Four college students said Monday that they were put on hold as they tried to contact 911 for help when they were carjacked at gunpoint near campus, but police said the calls were indecipherable or gave no information that could lead officers to them.

The gunmen on Sunday night forced two of the students into the trunk of a Buick LaCrosse, while the other two were in the back seat, the four said at a news conference at Morehouse College in Atlanta. One of the two in the trunk tried to place call after call to 911, but couldn't get through, he said.
