Paramedic refused to pick up a dying girl saying "I might hurt my back"

[ Mail Online ] 9 Dec

A paramedic refused to carry a dying schoolgirl to an ambulance for ‘health and safety’ reasons, an inquest heard yesterday. Cassandra Lynn allegedly said she was worried about her back during the ‘chaotic’ attempt to save 14-year-old Shannon Powell. Shannon had collapsed in mud and was foaming at the mouth in a violent fit during a cross-country race.

Shannon – just three weeks from her 15th birthday – died on the way to the ambulance
First aiders were so exasperated by Miss Lynn and her colleague from the London Ambulance Service they took matters into their own hands and carried Shannon themselves using a first aid trolley. However, Shannon – who was just three weeks from her 15th birthday – died on the way to the ambulance
