Dying man not worth saving...

You never know who is listening…

That’s the lesson learned by two brainiac’s today in London. According to TimesOnline.com, two ambulance technicians were called to a house where a disabled man lay dying. Barry Baker, 59, had dialed 999 for help stating that he believed he was having a heart attack. He was unconscious by the time the ambulance arrived.

The phone line was still open with the 999 operator and recording. The police state that the ambulancemen were heard discussing Mr Baker and saying “words to the effect that he was not worth saving”. They were also heard commenting on the untidy state of the house and it was not worth bothering to resuscitate him. They even discussed how they would explain it to ambulance control and decided to say that he was already dead when they got there.

The two men were arrested a short time later and will answer for their callous uncaring actions. I truly hope they get what they have earned.

The article had these comments related to Mr Baker…

Mr Baker’s funeral has had to be delayed because of the investigation, but a memorial service is due to take place at All Saints Church in Patcham on January 16. Paul Newman, landlord of the Ladies Mile, where a wake is due to be held, said yesterday that Mr Baker was a popular figure.

“He used to come to the pub every Sunday morning at opening time. He arrived by bus and met friends here and together they played a few hands of cards. He did it every Sunday without fail and was a really nice chap.”


~sigh~
