4 first responders placed on leave after 20-year-old Southfield woman declared dead, later found alive
SOUTHFIELD, Mich. – Four medics have been put on leave after a 20-year-old woman was declared dead and then found alive hours later. “She was breathing somewhat normal. So from all indication she was breathing somewhat normal, they told me it was because of the medication,” Beaucamp’s godmother said. The most alarming inaccurate statement is that a Southfield police officer placed Ms. Beauchamp in a body bag. Menifee said Southfield police arrived at about 8:07 a.m., and at 8:09 a.m., they announced that Beauchamp was dead and a physician was notified.
