A 17-year-old boy died from a gunshot wound after an emergency services operator told his friend to "deal with it yourself".

Jaydon Chavez-Silver was shot at a party in Albuquerque, New Mexico on June 26, KRQE reports.

The Manzano High School student had reportedly only been at the party for five minutes when someone started shooting. In a panic, one of his friends lost her temper with the 911 operator, Albuquerque Fire Department Driver Matthew Sanchez.

“I’m keeping him alive!” she can be heard saying on a recording of the call. “OK, is he not breathing?” Sanchez asks.

'You know what ma’am? You can deal with it yourself'

She answers, “Barely! One more breath! One more breath! There you go Jaydon. One more breath! There you go Jaydon. Good job! Just stay with me, OK? OK? There you go, good job Jaydon!”

Sanchez asks her again whether Jaydon is breathing.

“He’s barely breathing!" she snaps. "How many times do I have to f***ing tell you?”

Sanchez replies, “OK, you know what ma’am? You can deal with it yourself. I am not going to deal with this, OK?”

Desperately, she replies, “No, my friend is dying, I need … [call cuts out]”

Jaydon died later in hospital.

An investigation into alleged misconduct has been launched, Fire Chief Dave Downey said, but Sanchez has since resigned.

The fire department added that emergency services were dispatched to the home before the call ended.

The teenager's family are "beyond belief about what happened,” said Dan Sparago, a spokesperson for the family. “But at the same time they want to focus on [catching] the people who did this.”

No arrests have been made. Jaydon's family has appealed to anyone with information on the shooting to come forward.
