When the car got stuck her friend rushed into the reception area but was told to call an ambulance
LIVERPOOL, England — An asthmatic Liverpool student lay dying yards from the Royal's A&E department after a hospital receptionist told her friend she must phone an ambulance for treatment.
Melody Davis, 20, was driven to the Royal, but the car got stuck in a car park on nearby Mount Vernon Street because a barrier was blocking the way.
