Four years ago, Dallas resident David Taffet got home from work to the unimaginable. His husband Brian Cross was unconscious and had stopped breathing. Taffet vividly remembers yelling his husband’s name to see if he would wake up. He quickly grabbed his phone and dialled 911. He was put on hold.
“It took 20 minutes to get through,” Taffett said. “While my cell phone was on the night table, I was doing CPR on him for the entire 20 minutes.”
