A video of a black woman crying as white medics walked around until the last minute ignoring her son, until his heart rate dropped completely is going viral.
A black mother named Jessica Love Burnside cried as she accused the Comer Children’s Hospital in the University of Chicago of discriminating against her sick son.
She stated that she’s been telling the doctors all day that her son was dying, but they kept walking around ignoring her, until the very last minute.
The woman said she couldn’t get her phone out quickly enough to record how they were acting towards her, and the ways in which they ignored specifically her.
Here’s the video:

“Please note I couldn’t get my phone out in time to record them wait several minutes to help when my son’s heart rate and breathing were zero and he’s in cardiac arrest. I have been begging for help ALL DAY!!! Seth’s heartrate was in the 40s,50s and 60s all day and in a coma like state. I have been begging to go to the ICU and begging for certain tests to be run. My son has been appearing to slowly DIE THE ENTIRE DAY. THEY IGNORE ALL MY REQUESTS! His heart rate and pulse go to ZERO and they still wait to call a code and get help! They are not only killing US IN STREETS! #justiceforseth SHARE THIS VIDEO. THEY ARE KILLING US IN HOSPITALS. This is one moment amongst many horrors I’ve never shared. Being black with a medically complex son has been a nightmare I have documented racists abuse toward myself and other mothers”
The medics managed to get a pulse in the end and her son survived.
