Pittsburgh officials have denied the appeal of two paramedics disciplined in connection with the death of a Hazelwood man who died during a February snowstorm while waiting 30 hours for an ambulance.

Anthony Weinmann, president of the Fraternal Association of Professional Paramedics, Local No. 1, said the union plans to fight the denials.
