The Kansas City Star
KANSAS CITY — A patient being transferred between hospitals in a Kansas City ambulance allegedly died en route without the ambulance crew knowing it.
Kansas City Council members have asked for details about the Jan. 19 death of Frank M. Nigro Jr., 52, who was being taken from a Northland hospital to see a neurologist at St. Luke's Hospital near the Country Club Plaza.
Nigro's body allegedly was cold and gray when he arrived, indicating he had been dead for a while, relatives said.
