State: Southfield paramedic misled doc about ‘dead’ woman
SOUTHFIELD, Mich. – A suburban Detroit paramedic repeatedly failed to recognize that a young woman declared dead was alive and misled a doctor by phone about her condition, according to state authorities who offered more details about the strange case. The incident was bizarre because a funeral home discovered Timesha Beauchamp was alive when she gasped while her body was being prepared on Aug. 23. The latest details are in a state license suspension filed last week against Michael Storms, a Southfield firefighter and paramedic, who was part of a four-member team responding to the home of the 20-year-old woman. The Southfield fire chief said the incident still remains under investigation by the city. The state said Storms changed his report when it was uploaded a second time to an incident database the next day.
