NEW YORK – Two emergency medical technicians accused of refusing to help a dying pregnant woman say they were never asked to examine her nor told the extent of her condition.
Lawyer Douglas Rosenthal says his clients were only asked to summon an ambulance on Dec. 9 when they were taking a break in a Brooklyn eatery. He says Jason Green and Melisa Jackson never saw Eutisha Rennix, who was in the back of the Au Bon Pain, and that other employees didn't seem overly concerned about her condition.
Rosenthal says an employee only told Jackson that Rennix was exhibiting asthmatic symptoms and had some abdominal pain.
Witnesses have said the EMTs told workers to call 911, then left when they were asked to help. Rennix later died.
