Dead body at road­side

The Oban Times - - News -

THE body of a man was left ly­ing on the road­side at the en­trance to a busy is­land car park af­ter an am­bu­lance crew were mis­tak­enly stood down.

Last Fri­day, on Mull, an elderly male vis­i­tor to the is­land suf­fered a sus­pected fa­tal heart at­tack and died out­side shops in Tober­mory.

On Tues­day, Mull Com­mu­nity Coun­cil heard that while a GP, on hol­i­day on the is­land, worked on the man with a de­fib­ril­la­tor, buses full of pas­sen­gers slowed down with peo­ple star­ing at what was hap­pen­ing.

Mull coun­cil­lor Mary-Jean De­von said the sit­u­a­tion was dis­tress­ing for ev­ery­one in­volved and, while no- one should be blamed, a pro­to­col was needed for si­t­u­a­tions such as this, in­clud­ing hav­ing some­thing to cover up a body if re­quired.
