Sumary of Two paramedics suspended after grandmother alleges they falsely pronounced teen’s death:
- Two Houston paramedics have been suspended for seven days following an investigation involving the resuscitation of a teenage boy that failed to meet “standards and expectations,” authorities confirmed to Fox News.
- She wasn’t alarmed because the child’s body temperature and heart rate typically run low.

- According to Williams, two paramedics from the Houston Fire Department responded to the January call at a hotel where the family was staying.
- Williams allegedly urged the paramedics to take action after which they set up a heart monitor to check the boy’s pulse, but again declared the boy dead, she said.
- ‘ I said, ‘Well I believe in him, so do something,’” Williams added.
- Jacah was ultimately transported to Memorial Hermman Northeast Hospital where he went on to endure a 31-day hospital stay, according to Williams, claiming the boy’s tonsils partially collapsed due to insufficient oxygen supply to the brain, potentially spurring added brain damage.
