The emergency medical technicians accused of refusing to help a dying pregnant woman say they were never asked to examine her or told the extent of her condition.

A lawyer for the EMTs says they were only asked to call an ambulance on December 9th, when they were taking a break at a Brooklyn restaurant.

Douglas Rosenthal says Jason Green and Melisa Jackson never saw Eutisha Rennix, who was in the back of the Au Bon Pain, and that other employees did not seem very concerned about her condition.

The attorney says an employee only told his clients Rennix was exhibiting asthmatic symptoms and had some abdominal pain.

Rennix and her unborn child died shortly after being taken to the hospital.

The fire department is investigating and the EMTs have been suspended without pay. The Brooklyn district attorney's office has also launched a criminal probe.
