2015-12-26

A woman who collapsed after being arrested for refusing to leave a hospital when doctors discharged her died from a blood clot in her lung, officials said Wednesday. The woman, Barbara Dawson, 57, collapsed on Monday while being taken in handcuffs from the Liberty Calhoun Hospital, where she had gone for treatment for breathing difficulties, the police said. She was arrested for disorderly conduct and trespassing when she refused to leave, according to the police. The Blountstown police chief, Mark Mallory, said the medical examiner’s office found that Ms. Dawson had died from a blood clot caused by her being overweight. State law enforcement officials were called in to investigate.
