An Aragon man who wasn’t far from home died in the emer­gency room at Kenne­stone Hospi­tal dur­ing at­tempts to revive him, ac­cord­ing to Polk County Coro­ner Tony Bra­zier.

Bra­zier said that Jeremy Fincher, 33, of a Aragon-Tay­lorsville Road ad­dress, was de­clared dead by emer­gency room doc­tors at Kenne­stone Hospi­tal in Cobb County af­ter a nearly hour­long at­tempt to save his life last Tues­day, March 26.

Fincher was driv­ing alone on Aragon-Tay­lorsville Road not far from home when it was re­ported his ve­hi­cle over­turned and he was ejected last week. Bra­zier said it was re­ported to him by Georgia State Pa­trol of­fi­cers on the scene they be­lieve Fincher was not wear­ing his seat belt at the time when the wreck was re­ported around 5:17 p.m. on March 26.

When emer­gency of­fi­cials from Red­mond EMS and Polk County Vol­un­teer Fire and Res­cue ar­rived on the scene, they be­gan im­me­di­ate life­sav­ing ef­forts on Fincher and called for the AirLife he­li­copter to make a quick land­ing and trans­port Fincher to At­lanta Med­i­cal Cen­ter for emer­gency treat­ment.

Bra­zier said while over Cobb County airspace, Fincher’s con­di­tion wors­ened and the de­ci­sion was made to di­vert to Kenne­stone Hospi­tal, where upon land­ing emer­gency room per­son­nel be­gan treat­ing him while in trau­matic ar­rest.

“The physi­cians and staff at Kenne­stone ER worked for 45 min­utes try­ing ev­ery­thing un­der the sun,” Bra­zier said. “They were un­for­tu­nately un­able to save him.”

Of­fi­cers from Georgia State Pa­trol’s Cartersville post are in­ves­ti­gat­ing the wreck.
