Toronto paramedics claim elderly patient died during 3-hour ambulance wait
The union that represents Toronto's paramedics claims an elderly man died while waiting more than three hours for an ambulance.
The alleged incident happened on December 30th at nursing home near Don Mills Road and Overlea Boulevard.
The Toronto Sun reports an ambulance was called because the man was suffering with abdominal pain.
EMS classified the call for help as a low priority and the ambulance didn't come until hours later, after the nursing home called back when the patient's condition got worse.
