Further to lack of compassion in NHS hospital staff: two paramedics have been arrested by police for allegedly ignoring a dying disabled man.

Paramedics arrested after 'ignoring dying man'
article in the Telegraph


"They were detained after detectives were given a tape recording of them in the patient's house in which they were allegedly heard discussing not bothering to try to revive him.

The ambulance crew had been sent to Barry Baker's detached home after he dialled 999 saying he thought he was having a heart attack.

Ambulance controllers kept Mr Baker talking on the phone as they ordered the paramedic and ambulance technician to use their blue lights to get to him as quickly as possible.

However the 59-year-old, who lived alone, collapsed unconscious while talking on the phone, leaving the line open to the control centre as he lay on the floor.

Minutes later, dispatch centre staff heard their crew enter the house and allegedly make disparaging comments about its state.

A police source said the ambulancemen were then heard over the phone discussing Mr Baker and allegedly saying "words to the effect that he was not worth saving".

A police spokesman confirmed the arrests and said that a full scale investigation into the incident was being carried out by the force's Major Crime Team."
