Georgina Wilde: Ashby’s woman dies after waiting for several hours for an ambulance to arrive

St. John WA has apologized after an 80-year-old grandmother died of a heart attack while waiting 2 and a half hours for an ambulance to her home.

The state government has ordered an urgent review of the latest tragedy that shook the state’s hit health care system, which began when Georgina Wilde scored a triple 0 for help, complaining of chest pain around 2.30am on Sunday.

The work was marked as a priority, meaning the ambulance had to arrive at Ms. Wilde’s home in Ashby within 15 minutes under lights and sirens.

But 30 minutes later, the St. John’s Call Center told Ms. Wilde that there were no ambulances. She received the same information when she called the welfare center half an hour later at 3.30 from the call center.

The next time St. John’s operator called, there was no answer.
