Female inmate neglected by medical personnel, left to die (VIDEO)

Richmond Heights police officers stand with patient Anna Brown, who sits on the floor inside St. Mary's Health Center telling the officers she did not need to leave because she did not receive adequate care for the pain in her legs Thursday, Sept. 21, 2011. A short time later Police arrested Brown for trespassing and resisting arrest. Still frame from surveillance video obtained by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch from Richmond Heights Police Department via Sunshine Request.
Anna Brown, 29, died on the floor of a jail cell within an hour of being dragged from St. Mary’s Hospital. As blood clots spread from her legs to her lungs the hospital staff was busy refusing her further treatment. She was arrested because she refused to leave, she said she was in to much pain to stand. So she was carried to a squad car and driven to the Richmond Heights Police Department where officers carried her into a cell and laid her on the floor. She was found dead only minutes later.

Originally visiting the hospital due to a sprained ankle, she was unaware that the real problem was that her sprained ankle had caused blood clots. A doctor at St. Mary’s told police that she was okay to go, unwilling to properly treat the woman. At 7:33 in the video below, you can hear an officer in the cell after she died say, “we thought she was drug sick” but the autopsy revealed that she had not taken any drugs.
