Black woman says her daughter died after medics ‘assumed’ she couldn’t afford an ambulance ride

Published

on

A Tampa woman is claiming that her recently deceased daughter died needlessly because medics who arrived to treat her wouldn’t give her an ambulance ride they assumed she couldn’t afford.

Local news station WPBF reports that Tampa resident Nicole Black earlier this month found her daughter, 31-year-old Crystle Galloway, slumped over in a bathtub with drool coming out of her mouth. Despite not being responsive at the time, Crystle was still breathing.

She called 911 and told them of her daughter’s condition, while also noting that Crystle had just been given a C-Section to deliver her newborn son just days earlier.

After medics arrived, she claims they immediately told her that she would have to take her daughter in her own car because she wouldn’t be able to afford an ambulance ride.

“They never asked us if we had insurance, which we do,” she explained. “The whole conversation as the EMS drivers put my child in my car was that was best for us because we couldn’t afford an ambulance.”

After Black brought her daughter to a nearby hospital, she was found to have bleeding in her brain. She fell into a coma and subsequently died shortly after.

The medics who responded to Black’s call dispute her account and denied they told her that she couldn’t afford an ambulance. However, Hillsborough County Administrator Mike Merrill has subsequently said that the medics failed to do their job properly, even if they never discouraged Black from putting her daughter in an ambulance.

“The medics were suspended after an investigation revealed they failed to check Galloway’s vital signs and also filled out paperwork incorrectly,” writes WPBF. “They checked the patient hadn’t been found when clearly she had.”

Published

President Donald Trump Sunday morning admitted he brought up Joe Biden and the former Vice President’s son Hunter Biden while speaking with the President of Ukraine.

“The conversation I had was largely congratulatory, with largely corruption, all of the corruption taking place and largely the fact that we don’t want our people like Vice President Biden and his son creating to the corruption,” Trump said, speaking to reporters from the White House lawn.

New York Times battered on MSNBC for pushing smear of Hunter Biden in order to maintain access to Trump

Published

on

An "AM Joy" panel jumped all over the New York Times for pushing a widely debunked smear of Hunter Biden promoted by Donald Trump, saying the newspaper is more interested in maintaining their access to the Oval Office than debunking the lie.

Speaking with host Joy Reid -- who noted that her producers asked for comment from the Times but were rebuffed -- MSNBC regular Maria Teresa Kumar scorched the Times, as well as reporter Ken Vogel, for the uncritical parroting of the president's smear.

Ukrainian journalist throws down gauntlet after Giuliani smear: ‘I express my readiness to testify’

Published

on

A Ukrainian journalist said on Sunday that he would be willing to testify to Congress against President Donald Trump's attorney, Rudy Giuliani.

After Giuliani unleashed a bizarre rant on CNN accusing Democrats of trying to get help from Ukraine in the 2016 election, Ukrainian journalist Serhiy Leshchenko wrote an op-ed exposing the accusation as a lie.

In his op-ed, Leshchenko explains:

Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine the Manafort revelations would become fodder for the U.S. elections in 2020. President Trump’s lawyer Rudolph W. Giuliani, the mouthpiece of this campaign, is not only attempting to rehabilitate Manafort but is also working to undermine U.S. relations with Ukraine, which has been confronting Russian aggression on its own for more than five years. Giuliani and his associates are trying to drag our newly elected president, Volodymyr Zelensky, into a conflict between two foreign political parties, drastically limiting Ukraine’s room for maneuver in respect to the United States, perhaps its most important international partner.
