Charges have been dropped against an EMT who refused to help a dying pregnant woman – because she was on her coffee break!
In 2009, Melissa Jackson was on duty and in uniform when she walked to a nearby coffee shop for her coffee break and discovered that one of the employees was having a severe asthma attack. Jackson called an ambulance, but refused to help the woman. She even refused to go into the back room to see what type of medical care the woman needed.
Eutisha Rennix was six months pregnant at the time and ended up dying.
