Dying vet needed CPR
Hidden video shows his nurse laughing instead

The Washington Post, The Ottawa Citizen

By the late winter of 2014, James Dempsey had served in a world war, raised children, buried a wife and seen the best of his health behind him. As he prepared for a stay at a nursing home on the outskirts of Atlanta, the 89-year-old began to feel nervous. So his family hid a camera in his room at Northeast Atlanta Health and Rehabilitation, Dempsey’s son later told WSBTV. His father knew about it, he said, but the nurses didn’t. James Dempsey died in that room on Feb. 27, 2014, in front of the secret camera. What his family saw on the video made them sue the facility. Portions of the hidden video were aired this week by another news station, NBC 11Alive. The clips appear to show Dempsey gasping for air, begging for help and collapsing that morning while nurses barely attempt to revive him and at one point laugh over his bed.
