“He Can’t Breath” – Casey Kressin Retained By Police On Way To The Hospital – Dies
He was only 3 miles from the emergency room when Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin police pulled over the car for speeding through a red light. The car was driven by Leah Hryniewicki, Casey Kressin’s girlfriend. Casey was having a severe asthma attack. It was November 30, 2014, the last day of the 29-year-old Casey’s life.
A reeling Casey exited the car and kneeled to the ground and asked for his inhaler as he wheezed away, police said. Police said that Leah also jumped out and yelled to the officer that the man was having an asthma attack and that he needed to get to the emergency room.
The officer would not allow Leah to put Casey in her car and finish the three miles, neither would he put Casey in his cruiser and take him to the hospital. The officer called for an ambulance, which arrived about six minutes later. Casey was unresponsive when the ambulance arrived and was pronounced dead at the hospital.
Chippewa Falls Police Chief Wendy Stelter says she stands by her officer, who followed protocol. Stelter said that Leah should not have been allowed to drive the rest of the way because she was hysterical, and Casey was not put in the squad car because the officer believed that it would have been more exertion than Casey could have handled.
It was caught on dash cam. Viewer discretion advised.
R.I.P., Casey Kressin
