The death of the 19-year-old pregnant woman causes grief, with the relatives complaining that it is due to the long delay of the ambulance.
According to the latest information and as broadcast by ERT, the death of the 19-year-old pregnant woman from Nea Makri, who was in her 9th month, is attributed to intrauterine bleeding.
The Prosecutor’s Office immediately ordered a criminal investigation into the circumstances under which the woman and the baby she was carrying died. The incident happened shortly after the other tragedy in Kos, where a woman breathed her last in a farmer’s cart. The case has sparked a fierce political controversy.
At the same time, the death of the 19-year-old pregnant woman in Nea Makri also caused the intervention of the public prosecutor who ordered a preliminary examination after the complaints of her relatives that the EKAB ambulance was delayed for many hours.
In particular, the head of the Athens District Attorney’s Office gave an order for a criminal investigation to be carried out in all directions. The object of the investigation is the search for any persons responsible for the management of the specific incident and the untimely transfer of the 19-year-old to the hospital.
The investigation will be conducted by the head of the Criminal Prosecution, prosecutor Angeliki Triantafillou
“We called 20 times for an ambulance,” says a relative of the 18-year-old pregnant woman
At the same time, an investigation into the circumstances under which the incident was managed was ordered by the management of EKAB and the Ministry of Health, as the relatives of the unfortunate pregnant woman who was 9 months pregnant complain of long hours of delay by EKAB despite their continuous calls and appeals for help.
The niece of the stillborn pregnant woman spoke to protothema.gr about the dramatic hours the 18-year-old spent at their home in Nea Makri, waiting, as she says, for four hours until the ambulance arrived.
It is noted, however, that sources from the EKAB speak of two calls – at 11 am on Tuesday and at 12:35 – and of the arrival of the ambulance in 25 minutes from the second time the 18-year-old’s relatives said that she was in pain and seemed to be gives birth
“We were told there is no ambulance available”
According to the niece of the 18-year-old pregnant woman, her relatives called 166 20 times but the answer was that there is no ambulance available…
“She got up in the morning, sent her husband to work. He went to the bathroom and there some pains started. She takes her husband, comes back. She started throwing up, freezing, her eyes darting here and there, going numb. And we took the ambulance from 10 to 20, we took it again at 11.30, we took it for 20 times. They were mocking us that they are not available, that the ambulance is on the way. We were told he has high blood pressure. We had also taken at 8 in the morning” describes what happened on Tuesday morning, the relative of the 18-year-old.
“Finally, the ambulance came at 1:30 p.m. when the girl had a pulse but her pulse was very low,” adds the 16-year-old who, with the photo of the dead Elena in her hands, describes the desperate efforts of her relatives to keep her alive .
“Then some of our friends from Athens came faster than EKAV. When our relatives came they picked her up but she passed out. We got the ambulance again and started shouting and they told us not to move her because they will come. My uncle started giving her first aid. When he came here the EMS told us that he has very high blood pressure and a very low pulse. He was too short. We go to the Hospital, in Nea Makri, and the ambulance declared that the girls were dead but they were not dead,” he continues.
The 16-year-old also claims that her family called a taxi to take the fainting pregnant woman to the hospital, but the driver did not take responsibility for the transport: “The taxi came and saw that she passed out on the stairs and says ‘I’m not taking her’ because he may need oxygen and i don’t have any. And the taxi left.”
