WATCH: Paramedics Refuse to Save Dying Man in California, Cite COVID-19 Restrictions


Everybody loves to talk about how many people COVID-19 has allegedly killed.

What they don’t mention is how many people are killed because of the COVID-19 restrictions themselves. 

A man in a long-term care facility in California found that out the hard way.

Paramedics were called to the facility last month after the man suffered cardiac arrest.

Police bodycam footage shows two first responders standing in the entrance to the facility, but refusing to enter.

Allegedly there was confusion about State COVID-19 safety guidelines.

The man was eventually taken out of the facility by staffers, as well as the responding officer, to the first responders outside.

They finally took him to the hospital, but it was too late.

While it’s unclear whether or not the man could have been saved, it is clear that much more could have been done…

The Blaze has details on this story:

A California man at a long-term care facility died last month after paramedics on the scene refused to enter the building to provide treatment, citing an alleged county COVID-19 restriction — and now the city is investigating the events surrounding his death.

Joseph Angulo, 56, unresponsive and in cardiac arrest, was in desperate need of life-saving care the night of Nov. 11, but due to what appears to be confusion over an outdated coronavirus health and safety guideline, he may have been prevented from receiving that care.

It is unclear whether Angulo's life could have been saved, but based on the video of his final moments that night, it is clear that more could've been done. Police bodycam video, recently obtained by KTTV-TV, shows a police officer walking the halls of the Rialto Post Acute Care Center. Two Rialto Fire Department first responders are seen standing at the entrance of the facility but refusing to come in.

Fox 11 reported on this story.

They revealed some of the bodycam footage from that night:
