A mother of two in New Zealand, just 31 years old, suddenly died after a heart attack. She apparently complained of pain in the left side of her neck and her left shoulder.
She then went to work for the night shift on January 28th and returned home to get some sleep at about 10 am. She then woke up in the mid-afternoon and told her husband she felt dizzy and had chest pains
After she woke mid-afternoon she went to have a shower and told her husband she felt dizzy and had chest pains. That evening she had a heart attack and her husband tried to save her with CPR, though an ambulance didn’t arrive until nearly half an hour later. A second ambulance then arrived about 20 minutes later.
Once the ambulance finally got her to the hospital, she was intubated and taken to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU). Sadly, however, she was unresponsive and continued to deteriorate until she died the next day at 11 in the morning.
According to the New Zealand Herald, “an angiogram was unable to determine the cause of the cardiac arrest and there were no medical records to indicate why Simon would suffer a heart attack.” That source goes on to note that “She had no history of cardiovascular disease but the pathologist who conducted her autopsy told the coroner Simon’s death was most likely related to an underlying weakness in her coronary arteries.”
The New Zealand Herald took particular pains to argue that the cause was not a certain thing that many people suspect, secretly or not, is to blame for what seems to them like a plague of sudden deaths, saying:
A mother’s fatal cardiac arrest was not caused by a Covid-19 booster vaccination, a coroner has ruled, but St John has apologised to the dead woman’s husband for its delayed response to his 111 call.
Divya Simon, 31, a rest home nurse, had her third booster vaccination four days before suffering a massive heart attack, according to a decision from coroner Luella Dunn released today.
The Hamilton woman had the booster on January 25 last year, and took the next day off work at the Tamahere Eventide Rest Home because she felt unwell.
The New Zealand Herald also noted that the big problem seemed to be the delayed response of the ambulance. In its words:
St John provided a report showing it received the 111 call at 6.53pm, but an ambulance was not sent for seven minutes and when it was, it was sent from Morrinsville, a 30-minute drive from Hamilton and on the opposite side of the city from where Simon lived.
Between 6.53pm and 7.21pm when the ambulance arrived, four more calls were made to St John asking when the ambulance would arrive, including a second call at 7.05pm.
St John accepted it made several errors that evening including that the 111 call was not properly re-triaged after the ambulance service was advised Simon was not fully responsive, Dunn said.
“Had the St John service re-triaged that call correctly it was possible the ambulance may have arrived at the address nine minutes earlier.”
Secondly, other ambulances were available to respond to the 111 call but were not dispatched, Dunn said.
