Ellen Mix, the widow of Tim Mix, of Northwood, has filed a lawsuit in the Wood County Court of Common Pleas.
 
Mix, 67, waited 28 minutes for EMS personnel to arrive on the morning of March 3.
 
Ellen had called 9-1-1 to report that her husband was having breathing problems. She would call three times that morning, the last call relaying that her husband had stopped breathing.
 
By the time help arrived from Medic 804, an ambulance from Northwood Fire Station No. 1, manned by an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT), and Medic 50, an Advanced Life Support (ALS) rescue squad from Lake Township, Mix had stopped breathing.
