Cath Groom, a mother from Queensland, Australia, died after an ambulance that she had requested to attend to her chest pains did not arrive at her home.
She called the emergency services at around 10:30 pm on Friday.
Unfortunately, despite being on code one, her condition was not immediately treated.
She passed away on the day before her 52d birthday, and it is believed that her son Nicholas found her.
Her friends and family have posted tributes to her on social media, and they have expressed their grief and shock at the news of her death.
One of her friends stated that she was their “favorite human being” and that they will all be lost without her.
One of her friends said that she was a beautiful person who was taken too soon.
After her husband died, Ms Groom was left to look after her son.
Her sister posted a message on her Facebook page, saying that she should rest easy now with her husband and her father.
The tragic incident has reignited the call for the federal and state governments to address the issue of ambulance delays in Queensland.
Dr. Maria Boulton, the president of the AMAQ, stated that the state’s healthcare system is not good enough.
