Hotel death sparks petition for in-room 911 dial-through

Email

A 9-year-old girl's vain attempt to reach police by calling 911 as her mother lay dying in a Texas hotel room has generated a national petition drive to require that emergency services be accessible from all hotel rooms simply by dialing 911.

The girl's mother, Kari Hunt Dunn, was stabbed to death on Dec. 1 in the bathroom of a Baymont Suites motel room in Marshall, Texas, where she had intended to drop off three young children for a visit with their father, Brad Allen Dunn.
