Ann Marie Thomas 45 was charged with willful neglect of duty
Ann Marie Thomas, 45, is accused of intentionally delayed her response to a dispatch of an eight-month-old infant who was struggling to breath.
According to the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office, Thomas stopped her vehicle en route to the home and parked less than a mile away.
The child had been born prematurely in September 2014 and had since been assisted by an oxygen machine. Another emergency medical technician was sent to the home, but I'Nayah Wright-Trussel later died. The charges were filed November 30, but weren't publicly disclosed until the former EMT was charged, WDIV-TV reported.
"I'm not about to be on no scene 10 minutes doing CPR, you know how these families get'".
Another EMT unit was dispatched to the location, but the child died later that day, according to prosecutors. Thomas was sacked the following month. Thomas' bond has been set at $25,000 and her next court appearance is scheduled for April 28. Though the civil suit against the city was dismissed in November, it is unclear whether the city paid out a settlement to the mother.
