Shanna, 13, dies during Christmas: her family files a complaint because help did not intervene in time
On December 24, Christmas Eve, Shanna, a 13-year-old girl living in Saint-Hippolyte in France was vomiting.
On December 26, as her condition was not improving, her mother went to the pharmacy. The healthcare worker advised her on gastroenteritis medication and urged her to see a doctor if things got worse.
On December 27, Shanna asked for something to eat. But there, her condition really deteriorated. “She could not stand up any more” says her sister.
On December 29, her condition worsened so much that her family called for help.
But, according to her relatives, they were slow to come. By the time they arrived at the scene, Shanna was dead.
The family filed a complaint against the Sdis and the Samu because they believe that Shanna was not rescued in time.
