Ms Dhu 'treated like a dog' by police before death in custody, inquest told | Australia news | The Guardian


Ms Dhu 'treated like a dog' by police before death in custody, inquest told | Australia news | The Guardian: The video showed at length the interactions between Ms Dhu and police in the station, including moments when she can be heard crying and moaning in pain and asking for medical attention.

She was eventually dragged from the cell by two officers as no wheelchair or stretcher was available and taken to hospital in a police van.

The coroner declined a request by media to release the footage for publication after Dhu’s family said it would cause them distress.

Dhu was identified as having a heart attack when she arrived at hospital, despite police telling the triage nurse she was “faking it”. She was pronounced dead at 1.39pm after doctors spent 53 minutes trying to revive her.
