Man dies after being denied an ambulance
A 23-year-old man died as a result of a ruptured spleen, despite being in contact with emergency services three times. When the man called 112, the national emergency number, a nurse decided he wasn’t sick enough to get an ambulance.
When the man called for the third time SOS Alarm asked a doctor to call up and talk to him. But even though the 23-year-old didn’t answer his phone, they decided not to send an ambulance. A neighbour later found the man dead.
The man’s parents have now reported SOS Alarm and Stockholm County to police.
