Fearing that a woman was inside a residence having diffi culty breathing, Archbold Rescue broke down a door, only to find no one home.
An Archbold police report states the rescue squad was called to a home in the Fox Chase Community about 2:30 pm, Sunday, April 22.
Andy Brodbeck, Archbold Fire Department chief, said rescue workers were told a woman inside the home of Jasmine Conley, 29, was having difficulty breathing and had stopped talking.
Brodbeck said rescue workers could not get anyone to come to the door, and could not get inside.
With Archbold police offi cers standing by, the decision was made to kick the door open. Left For Hospital
Brodbeck said Conley and the ill person were talking to the Veteran’s Administration about the person’s diffi culty breathing.
VA officials wanted the ill woman to travel to Ft. Wayne, Ind. or Ann Arbor, Mich., but she was too ill to make the trip.
They decided to leave for a local hospital.
“The VA thought she went down. She quit talking. All indications were she was still in the residence,” Brodbeck said.
Conley called police about 5:25 pm that evening, reporting the damage to her door.
Police informed her of what happened. Repair
Brodbeck said Conley was told to get repair estimates and present them to her insurance company and the Village of Archbold.
He said he made sure Conley’s front door was secure until it could be repaired.
