Colorado Family Gets Bill After Ambulance Breaks Down, Man Dies

Family members of a man who died after the ambulance he was riding in broke down say they plan to sue the city that operates the service, reports FOX Denver 31.

The ambulance broke down in Strasburg, approximately 120 miles into the transport from Cheyenne Wells to the Denver area.

An autopsy report obtained by the FOX31 Problem Solvers mentions the ambulance problem when explaining Hendrickson’s final diagnosis.

According to the autopsy, Hendrickson died of “acute cardiac arrest associated with three days of intractable nausea and vomiting from an apparent upper gastrointestinal illness.” The report said hypertensive cardiovascular disease contributed to his death.
