Update on family in botched 911 call case

  • FATHER AND SON: Dayong Yang with his son Le in recent photo.
The Arkansas Blog reported yesterday on the resignation of the suspended 911 dispatch operator for the Little Rock police department who notified MEMS, the ambulance service, but apparently failed to notify police and fire agencies after a Little Rock nurses's SUV slid off an icy road and into a cold pond in western Little Rock in January. The delay in arrival of units able to do a water rescue likely contributed to the eventual death of the driver of the car, Jinglei Yi, and serious injuries from exposure suffered by her five-year-old son, Le Yang.

I heard this morning from a family friend.

I know folks are curious about Le Yang. Several neighbors still keep in touch with his father Dayong. Le Yang was placed in the Arkansas Pediatric Hospital off McCain Blvd April 14th. He remains in a coma. His care was more than his father could handle.

Dayong rented out his home and lives in apartments closer to his son and his job.

Dayong is doing as well as can be expected. He goes to work, visits his son at lunch, goes back to work, and visits Le after work. This is his new normal.

An account was opened to help the family at Bank of the Ozarks.

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
