Geoffrey Fieger announced today that on October 18, 2020, Timesha Beauchamp was allowed to die peacefully at Children’s Hospital, where she had been transferred from Sinai Grace Hospital. She died as a result of massive brain damage that was suffered when Southfield paramedics wrongly declared her dead, and failed to provide her much needed oxygen. Instead, she was sent to a funeral home which then discovered that her eyes were open, and that she was alive.
Suit has been filed against the paramedics. The family has issued the following statement:
“Our whole family is devastated. This is the second time our beloved Timesha has been pronounced dead – but this time she isn’t coming back.”
