    Default Paramedics let man die after heart attack

    2 ambulance crew are overheard discussing decision to let man die after a heart attack rather than try and save him after a 999 call, saying he's not worth saving. Both have since been arrested, charged and released on bail.

    What is happening to this country..... jeeeez.

    Difficult to believe and a total contrast to the two guys who turned up at my mums this morning after she became ill overnight. They were world class in their care and attention and got her to the hospital within 15 minutes of me dialing 999.

    I'm sure this must happen alot to be honest , I know it's awful but at the end of the day it's just a job to these guys .
    I know most paramedics hold the highest respect for life , but others will be more hardened to things like this.
    This is just my opinion .

    Hangon, before we go 100% on this, was the man in what can be described as bring back a veggy? there are time limits on the brains ability to live after the heart stops, and worst case, what if they knew he was a wrongun, would you want him revive then?


    It's a PC world ppl, and the bare facts hardly ever emerge.

    Just read the link, disabled, if they knew him and knew his quality of life, perhaps they felt it would be better to let him slip off, I've yet to meet an uncaring paramedic, and I feel there is more to this than the obvious.

    ^^^^ vauxveteran - This is the issue I was skirting around .
    Very hard decision , and to be honest if I keeled over , and the meatwagon turned up and decided it was game over as far as quality of life was concerned , I'd trust there judgement I think.

    This happened to my auntie last year , a week before christmas , she dropped in the kitchen , uncle tried reviving her , ambulance turned up , worked on her all the way to the hospital.
    Then onto life support , only to turn everything off a few days later.
    To be honest I think it gives people false hope - sometimes your numbers up and that's it .

    i agree , taking a back step VV does have a valid point , we live in a very PC world and given the brains ability to live after the heart stops..... well i think this needs to develop further and the full picture become clearer , i therfore retract my previous comment
