There is a shocking tape being reviewed in Brighton, England where two ambulance workers are overheard debating whether Barry Baker, 59, was “worth saving.” The disabled man had collapses in his home and later died.
Baker had called 999 and was kept on the line as the ambulance rushed to his house after he complained of chest pains. The crew did not realize that the operator was still listening on the telephone after they arrived. The operation said that she heard the two medics making disparaging comments about Baker, his home, and “words to the effect that he was not worth saving”.
The men have been arrested on suspicion of “wilfully neglecting to perform a duty in public office, contrary to Common Law.” They have been released on police bail pending further inquiries.”
