Doctor charged with manslaughter of Patrick Ekeng
The 26-year-old died in a hospital from a heart failure almost two hours after collapsing during the league match in May for his club Dinamo Bucharest against FC Viitorul Constanța.
The Romanian public prosecutor has claimed that Elena Duta, the emergency medical specialist in the ambulance which took Ekeng to hospital, made no attempt to resuscitate the player and the hospital staff were unable to resuscitate him upon his arrival.
The Bucharest prosecutor said: “Even if among Patrick Ekeng’s causes of death were the cardiac problems he suffered from, by her unjustified inaction Elena Duta removed any chance of survival.
“She did not evaluate the footballer’s state of health and made no attempt at resuscitation.”
The prosecutor’s office quoted forensic scientists saying that 95% of people with similar heart problems survive cardiac arrest if defibrillation is administered within 60 seconds saying.
“The chances of survival drop by 5.5% with every minute,” prosecutors said.
The former Cameroon international joined Dinamo Bucharest in the January transfer window, and he was only making his seventh league appearance for his side.
