Family files wrongful death suit against ambulance company
(NECN: Alysha Palumbo – Boston) – “Something that should have been very, very routine, ended up in a nightmare for myself and my family,” said the victim’s brother Peter Zacarelli.
It’s been two years since Peter Zacarelli lost his 68-year-old sister Barbara Grimes.
Zacarelli said, “I spoke to her that morning and she said I’m going to be going for dialysis, and I said hey Barb, I’m going to try to drop by tonight or I’ll talk to you later and that was it.”
It was January 31st, 2009 and it was the last time he spoke with her.
Grimes was being transported home from dialysis in Plymouth, Massachusetts by an American Medical Response ambulance when Zacarelli’s attorney says the EMTs dropped her off a stretcher and onto her head.
