A 39-year-old man died in a hospital parking lot. His family says he was denied treatment 3 times.

Business Insider – by Canela López

David Bell, a 39-year-old father of three, died in his wife’s arms on January 12 in a hospital parking lot in St. Peters, Missouri after being turned away a third time, reported KMOV4.

Bell, the director of Central County Fire & Rescue, had gone to Barnes-Jewish Hospital for persistent chest pains twice on the week of January 8, his family said. Both times, they said, medical staff refused to admit him and sent him home with a prescription for ibuprofen.

Days later, his wife, Sadie, said she got a call from his coworkers on January 12, saying he had shortness of breath and they’d taken him to hospital. When they told her which hospital, her heart sank: it was Barnes-Jewish again.

When Bell arrived at the emergency room, he was given the same inconclusive diagnosis he had already received and once again sent home without undergoing any tests.

But on his way to the car with Sadie, Bell doubled over.

“We got halfway to the car and he said, ‘Oh Sadie.’ And I said, ‘Baby what’s wrong?'” Sadie told KMOV4.

After a bystander attempted to perform CPR, Bell died in his wife’s arms in the parking lot.

In a statement emailed to Insider, BJC HealthCare, which runs Barnes-Jewish said: “Our thoughts are with the family after this loss, as well as with the entire Central County Fire & Rescue team. We cannot comment on individual patient cases due to patient privacy laws.”

Sadie told KMOV4 she believes her husband did not receive the treatment he deserved because doctors and medical staff did not take his concerns seriously.

“I don’t want any family to feel what we’re feeling right now,” she said.

    1. fkg genocide man, point aim fire…These MTHRFKRS are doin their own sick holocaust. I believe that wholeheartedly.

  1. Hey, he was a Goy, they have no obligations to treat those types of people…stop complaining and just die already, have you taken your vaccine yet…

  2. This sounds like a metaphorical cautionary tale.

    The parallel of people constantly drinking of the poisoned well and returning to it for remedy is mind boggling.

  3. Doctors/hospitals are the third cause of DEATH in Amerika…try to avoid them…’course when this man needed them…they FAILED him!! Lawsuit big time!!!!

  4. Nothing new and it is a fact: Hospitals labeled Jewish do not treat non-Jews… I remember one called “Long Island Jewish Hospital” that only treated Jews. Talmudic nonsense and all that. And believe it or not but that “legendary Jewish Supremacist Book of Deuteronomy” says nothing about “Jews” (that is, Israelites) not being allowed to treat “sojourners” (aka gentiles or foreigners)…this is straight out of the Talmud, not the Torah.
