Suit Filed Against Deputy who Demanded CPR to Cease

September 21, 2012

In 2011, a Maryland Reverend was suffering cardiac arrest and died after he did not receive medical attention quickly enough. That is not to say it wasn’t offered, but after CPR was being administered, and the Rev. was responding well to it, a deputy arrived on the scene and ordered the CPR to stop until medical professionals arrived. Why the deputy denied what could have been life-saving treatment is unknown. In addition to wrongful death, the suit also alleges negligence by the sheriff’s office for hiring an employee that would stop CPR during cardiac arrest.
