RIP Barry Baker

UK paramedics were recently caught on tape discussing their decision to simply let a disabled, overweight man die and claim that he was dead when they arrived, instead of rescuing him. They apparently based their decision on the man’s weight, disability, and the relatively unkempt state of his house.

Fortunately in this case the offending emergency workers were caught on tape; however, there is no telling how often this type of incident occurs without anyone ever finding out.
