If This Happened in the United States …
… we'd hear about how universal health insurance can prevent it:
A Kelowna man who drove an unconscious man to the parking lot of his local hospital couldn't believe his ears when medical staff told him to call 911 and wait for an ambulance.
Ralph Vogel and his wife had been letting a homeless man sleep in their motor home, but became alarmed when they couldn't wake him Wednesday morning.
So Vogel powered up the motor home and drove the man to the Kelowna General Hospital.
He ran inside and told medical staff that a man was either dying or dead in his motor home.
When staff told him to call 911 and wait for an ambulance, he told them that the man was just outside in the parking lot. He was still told to call 911.
By the time the ambulance arrived, it was much too late. The man had already been dead for several hours.
