This obviously was not made public at all: a man is injured inside a Hazel Crest ambulance en-route to south sub hospital in November 2012, dies in April 2013. Injury occurred INSIDE ambulance: broken neck, snapped spinal cord leaving man paralyzed. How come this did not make the news? Does anyone know about this?

Yup. He was a psyc case and got physical with the crew and fell and hit his head, breaking his neck. Damn shame, but it's all his fault.

yes, the man was a psyc case, even handcuffed behind his back by PD. why wasn't he properly secured especially if he was "flipping out"? being placed on a gurney any patient should have the legs, waist/hips, and chest areas securely strapped. how did he get physical with the crew if he was properly secured? how did he fall and hit is head if he was properly secured? something went terribly wrong initially. a failure by medics to follow protocol perhaps? a failure by PD not to ride in ambulance with a psyc subject handcuffed? it is a complete damn shame but how can you say it was all the subjects fault?

Doesn't look like anyone's interested.
