SOS Alarm nurse freed by Court of Appeal

The Court of Appeal in Stockholm has freed a nurse working for SOS Alarm who had earlier stood trial for manslaughter for refusing to send an ambulance to the home of a young man in the capital who had made repeated calls for help and died from a ruptured spleen. 

The Svea Court of Appeal agreed with last year's district court verdict that while the 53-year-old nurse, who no longer works for the emergency call operator, should have sent an ambulance, it was not possible to prove that 23-year-old Emil Linnell would have survived if he had received pre-hospital care.
