Case concerning footballer Patrick Ekeng’s death. Ambulance medic, remanded on conditional bail

Mihaela Duta, the Puls ambulance medic that took footballer Patrick Ekeng to hospital from the stadium where he had collapsed because of heart problems, has been remanded on conditional bail while the probe continues. Duta is accused of involuntary manslaughter and has been banned from exercising her profession.

The medic was heard on Wednesday morning, after she was indicted on June 30.

Duta is accused of mishandling the emergency medical procedures, namely that she did not resuscitate the footballer from the moment she entered the pitch to the moment she handed him over to hospital medics.

Dinamo’s Patrick Ekeng (26) died after he collapsed on the pitch on May 6, during a game against Viitorul Constanta. The following day, Floreasca Hospital’s Dr. Serban Bradisteanu stated that the footballer’s life could have been saved had the medics intervened faster and in line with procedures at the stadium. That same day, the Bucharest Court Prosecutor’s Office announced that an investigation into manslaughter had started. Later on, medical reports showed that Patrick Ekeng had had heart conditions.
