Hours after Perth grandmother Georgina Wilde died alone on her couch waiting for an ambulance to arrive, an elderly man also died on suspicion of a heart attack as the WA ambulance crisis continues.

An 80-year-old man from Bellevue called Triple-0 at 8:15 a.m. Sunday with a complaint of abdominal pain.

He was assigned to three priority patients, meaning the paramedic had to arrive within an hour.

But just two hours later at 10:08 a.m. St. John WA called a man to conduct a welfare check.

At the time, the man was suffering from chest pain and was transferred to priority, according to Nine News.

When the ambulance finally arrived five minutes later, he was in the middle of what could turn out to be a fatal heart attack, and he died upon arrival at the hospital.
