Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The emergency team encounters more frustrations than usual during a long, long shift. For starters, an elderly woman fakes stomach problems in order to get attention from her squabbling family. Elsewhere, the doctors treat a boy with meningitis, whose civic-activist mother seems unconcerned about his plight. Also, a drunk is trapped by a faulty elevator in a burning apartment, and the injured victims of an auto accident mysteriously vanish just before help arrives.
