An emotional daughter talks about the death of her mother after it took emergency workers nearly 2-hours to respond to her home.
Bronnie Lee Hollifield died last Tuesday, just hours after she made it to the hospital.
Emergency workers had a rough time getting up to Bronnie Hollifield's home on Kings Row in Varnell. Bronnie's daughter isn't pointing fingers at the bad weather or the response time, but it was all bad timing.
"I lost my best friend, she was everything, she was priceless," says Violet Hall.
Violet Hall may never get over her 91-year-old mother's death. Violet has been her primary caregiver for 6-years.
"Mom was ready, she was beyond ready, and she would tell me, I don't know why GOD has kept me here this long, I'm ready to go home," says Hall.
Bronnie Hollifield, had a history of congestive heart failure. Hall called 9-1-1 last Tuesday after her mother was having trouble breathing - the same day all the snow came.
"I'm not saying that she would have survived, I know that it was her time, but it was just a bad situation for everybody," says Hall.
Hall says with all of the snow and the many cars parked along the main road, there was no way an ambulance could make it up to her home. That's why she says an SUV was brought up to her home on King's Row to take her mom down to the ambulance.
2-hours later her mother was taken to the hospital - where she later died.
Varnell police ended up having to tow all 23 cars to allow emergency workers room to make it through.
"None of my officers told anybody to park on the road that I have been able to find. The law clearly states you can't park on the road," says police Chief Lyle Grant.
"It was just the weather that came in real quick on everyone, and I don't blame anyone," says Hall.
Bronnie Hollifield has 9 children. She was laid to rest on Saturday.
