The death of Thomas Power, Bellelake, Woodstown who died from a cardiac arrest in the back of an ambulance last Sunday afternoon was avoidable. The lack of 24/7 cardiac care which has been promised and pledged for the past number of years, is proof positive that if the facilities had been available his life could have been saved.

Depite the valiant efforts of the medial team, he could not be revived and was pronounced dead on arrival at Cork University H ospital.

His sister Catherine rang RTE’s Liveline on Monday afternoon last to convey the deep anger and frustration of her family about her brother’s death. She said "If the cath lab was open in Waterford, he would still be with us." Catherine said this was a tragic warning to other families in the South East.
