It was an unusual 911 call in Arlington.
“Yes, I’m locked in someone’s business establishment,” a woman reported. “I don’t hear anybody. The music went off. The door is locked and his car is gone.”
The call came at about 6 p.m. on Aug. 5th from the Hwa Tow Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs Clinic.
Operator: “Are you a patient?”
Caller: “Yes. I was in the middle of a treatment. All of the sudden, I saw him running out for someone to come. I ended up pulling the needles out.
Yes, they forgot about her. There were only two people in the establishment. I suppose this could happen in any business but to be left with needles stuck in you makes things CONSIDERABLY worse. The establishment has no other negative reports and another patient quoted will continue to visit. The Dr. was very embarrassed and apologetic. It was a mistake.
