Devastating tragedy, as family of a woman who died of domestic violence injuries slams Ambulance Victoria for not sending assistance.
Kylie Cay was 44 when she died of a ruptured spleen in June 2016, caused by injuries inflicted on her by partner Justin Turner, who was convicted in 2017 for manslaughter.
The horrific audio captured the moment when the Port Fairy woman, screaming in agony, pleaded for help from Ambulance Victoria.
Last week the Victoria Coroners Court heard a video from Ambulance Victoria telling Ms Cay that she did not need an ambulance because it “wasn’t a medical emergency”.
The next day, she was found dead at her house.
Ms Cay’s brother, Heath Cay, said the loss of the caring mother, sister and daughter had “shattered many lives” in an emotional statement shared with NCA Newswire.
The Geelong police officer said that an investigation was demanded by the family because “such events should never be repeated”.
“We are continuously haunted by the thoughts of her last moments being in extreme pain, begging for help,” Mr Cay said.
“She died in isolation, knowing that help was not coming.
“These two people who discovered her body were unfamiliar with death, and were forced to see their loved one in the most horrible of circumstances.
“Those visions cannot be unseen.”
