The paramedic is facing charges
Security camera footage showing a paramedic throwing a cancer patient to the ground has been released by the Florida State Attorney's Office.
Kenneth Hallenbeck, 35, a Brevard County firefighter and paramedic, was transporting James Slater, 49, at Wuesthoff Medical Center in Rockledge, Florida. The video, taken in February and released last week, captures the moment Hallenbeck overturned the stretcher his patient was on.
Slater told local station WFTV he refused to get off the stretcher after finding out the hospital didn't have a bed for him, and that's when Hallenbeck lost his temper
