Is US Cellular’s poor service to blame for the death of a Clear Lake man? Ann Poole has filed a lawsuit in Cerro Gordo County District Court alleging that on May 18th, 2008 she dialed 911 from her US Cellular cell phone after her husband, Rick Pool, went into cardiac arrest and was incorrectly routed to a call center in Cedar Rapids. She is claiming that the lost time due to the incorrect transfer contributed to the death of her husband. In cardiac arrest situations minutes can be the difference between life and death, could it in this situation have been the difference between living and dying? I'm guessing that's the issue to be decided at the trial. Can U.S. Cellular afford to have that question answered?
Should elderly people be concerned with what cell phone provider they use? I'd like to see the transcripts from depositions; they might answer a lot of questions that rural Iowans would find interesting.
They tell us one thing but is it all true? Advertising can be so misleading.
