Australian Man Suffers Heart Attack Whilst Arrested For Not Wearing a Mask

A shocking video from Brisbane shows an elderly man suffering a suspected heart attack when he is arrested by police for not wearing a mask outside while exercising.

The incident occurred in Brisbane Botanical Gardens on Monday while the man was taking his allowed exercise. He had a mask exemption due to his medical condition, but that did not deter the police who arrested him anyway.

The clip shows the man being handcuffed while complaining about his wrists hurting. A woman who is accompanying the elderly man tries to answer the questions police officers are asking about the man’s place of work.

“Absolutely disgraceful,” says the woman as he is led away.

The video then cuts to him having a violent seizure as he appears to suffer a heart attack.

Police remove the handcuffs as the elderly man desperately reaches for his medicine while the woman shouts, “Just let me get it for God’s sake!”

See, do you believe me now, you pricks!” she states as one of the officers says he is unable to administer the medication (although he’s perfectly willing to induce a heart attack in an old man for not wearing a piece of useless cloth over his mouth).

A final image from the scene shows paramedics attending the scene as the elderly man still lies prostrate on the ground. “Police allegedly joked when he had a seizure that they did not believe he had heart problems that warranted the mask exemption,” reports Rebel Media. “The man’s heart medication was revealed to be in a plastic bag in his backpack.”

Caution advised

An Instagram user called _josephmerlino claiming to be the man’s son posted a message asserting, “My father could have suffered brain damage from this. Permanent injury or death. All for what because of a mask?” "Police are supposed to serve and protect and there is none of that is happening here,” he stated.
