The lane closure scandal rocking "heartbroken" New Jersey Governor Chris Christie's administration is raising questions whether gridlock delayed paramedics' effort to save a 91-year-old woman who was in cardiac arrest and later died. "This crosses a line that is rarely crossed: People's lives were in danger," said New Jersey state Senator Ray Lesniak, a Democrat. "Endangering people's lives -- that's not politics. That's why the U.S. attorneys have to get involved." Lesniak is asking for federal prosecutors to open an investigation into whether the lane closures were a factor in the woman's death.
