So, you go to the hospital because you feel like you may be dying. The staff keeps telling you there is nothing wrong and you have to leave... so much so that they call the police in for back up. But YOU JUST KNOW something isn't right. Sounds like one of the most hopeless feelings in the world, right?
Well, this is exactly what happened to a 57 year old Florida woman... now she is dead.
"No, no, no, no,"
Dawson implores the responding officer when he begins talking with her.
She asks him to leave the room and says she is feeling sick.In audio captured by his vehicle's dashcam video, the officer calmly responds:
"Here's what's going to happen. You can walk out of this hospital peacefully or I can take you out of the hospital."
Dawson repeatedly cries out, "Oh my God, oh my God, oh my God."
After she is removed and taken outside, Dawson collapses and lies on a parking lot for nearly 20 minutes before she is rushed back into the hospital. She is declared dead about 90 minutes after the officer arrived.If you listen to the audio from the dashcam video below, you can hear Dawson plead with the officer and hospital staff to not let her die. She also repeatedly tells them that she can't breath."I can't breath... I can't breath.
"You can hear Dawson plead on the audio."Falling down like this, laying down, that's not going to stop you from going to jail," the police officer said.
"This is only making things worse on you."At another point, a woman can be heard saying, "Ms. Dawson, come on now. There ain't nothing wrong with you."
The medical facility said it has been asked why Dawson was removed. "While we can't discuss her situation directly, we can say we generally only ask patients to be removed when there is a cause for concern about other patients' care or safety."
