Still from the hidden camera and police file

    The hospital’s legal council attempted to stop media news outlet from obtaining the video, but a judge ruled to unseal the footage.

    James Dempsey’s family had hidden a camera in his room in the Northeast Atlanta Health and Rehabilitation Center to capture the cruel and shocking events on the night he died.

    The video showed the panicking patient repeatedly calling out for help, because he could not breathe. It also showed the black nurses laughing while failing to take life-saving measures.

    Police launched an investigation and on Wednesday a grand jury returned an indictment, the channel reported.

    They were charged with murder, depriving an elder of essential services and neglect to an elder, the report said. Warrants have been issued for their arrests.

    One nurse told Dempsey’s family lawyers in the deposition that when she learned the veteran had stopped breathing, she rushed to his room and took over CPR, keeping it up until paramedics arrived, WXIA-TV reported.

    But the secret video showed that nobody was doing CPR when she arrived, and neither did she. After the nurse was shown the video, and asked why she was laughing, she said she did not remember.

    The hospital was told of the video in 2015 but yet did not terminate the nurses until 10 months later when the Georgia Board of Nursing was sent a link to the video by the news station.

    Meanwhile in South Africa, the cruel and horrific deaths of more than a hundred mental patients at the hands of their carers are being swept under the rug.
