(ANNews) – Earlier this month, an Indigenous man from O’Chiese First Nation was denied medical service for his mother who was believed to be having a heart attack.
In a video posted to Facebook, Sonni Strawberrii is seen being denied medical attention from an EMS ambulance while his mother is unconscious in the passenger seat of his car.
The paramedics in the ambulance can be heard saying that the vehicle was “out of service.”
Luckily, Strawberrii found an ambulance that did help and his mother recovered the next day in hospital.
