D.C. Paramedic Disciplined Over Letter to City Council

WASHINGTON, DC (MyFoxDC) - A DC paramedic who publicly criticized staff shortages this week says the fire department has now placed him on administrative leave. The paramedic, Jon Botwin, wrote a letter to city council last week following the death of a 5-month-old baby girl. In his email, a copy of which was obtained by Fox 5 News, the nine-year veteran firefighter told councilmembers "our city is in danger" because of what Botwin calls "ridiculous mis-management" of the city's paramedic corps.
