Two emergency medical technicians are reportedly set to return to work today after they were suspended for allegedly refusing to help a dying pregnant woman.
Jason Green and Melissa Jackson are now telling their side of the story.
According to several published reports, the pair says the story as it’s been reported, is full of lies. They said they were on a scheduled break at a Brooklyn Au Bon Pain on December 9th when a colleague of 25-year-old Eutisha Rennix’s told them she was suffering abdominal pain and had asthma.
Green and Jackson say they called an EMS dispatcher for help, while asking Rennix's colleague for information on her condition.
They acknowledge that they never saw Rennix, but say they did not have proper medical equipment to treat her.
The two have not given their details to fire department investigators because of ongoing investigations by the Brooklyn district attorney’s office and the city’s Department of Investigation.
Green and Jackson were reported to have told people there to call 911 instead of offering to help.
An EMT union executive has said they were dispatchers and not trained to handle that type of situation.
