Paramedic Fired for Telling Dying Woman to Drink Gin and 'Relax'

A paramedic was fired after he told a dying woman to have an alcoholic drink and she died two days later, London’s Daily Telegraph reported.

Paramedic Roger Gray, formerly of South Central Ambulance Service in Aylesbury, Bucks, told the woman, who had severe stomach pains and a history of low blood pressure that she would have to wait several hours at the emergency room so she should go ahead and have a gin and orange juice in order to relax.

The woman took herself to the hospital and died two days later.

Two months later, Gray told a multiple sclerosis sufferer that her case wasn’t serious enough for an ambulance and she should take a taxi to the hospital.
