British nurses ignore dying man on hospital floor 

British National Health Service nurses at Manchester Royal Infirmary left Peter Thompson, 41, lying in the middle of a hospital corridor and stepped over his dying body for more than 10 hours. They thought the voluntary-rehab patient was “sleeping it off.” When they eventually realized he was dead, they dragged him away across the floor. The entire episode was recorded on security cameras. A coroner has ruled that Thompson’s death was “wholly preventable.”
