Cape Cod Times - MASHPEE — During a frantic 911 call that lasted more than 12 minutes, Brent McFarland can be heard screaming his fiancée's name, describing her condition and making what sounds like attempts to blow into her mouth. McFarland tells the dispatcher he is with someone who is choking and is told an ambulance is on its way. Later in the call, the dispatcher does not say a word for nearly a minute, and later for two minutes, and again for nearly two minutes.
