A woman locked out of a hospital dies of a heart attack

A tragic misunderstanding by the staff:

A woman died outside a south-east Queensland hospital in what was believed to be a tragic misunderstanding, an Aboriginal council chairman said today.

The woman had been suffering chest pains when she was driven to the Cherbourg Hospital, north-west of Brisbane, by a male friend on Saturday night.

But the man was refused entry to the hospital and when police arrived they found the woman dead in the car.

Cherbourg council chairman Ken Bone said the death was the result of a misunderstanding because the nurses believed the man banging on the door of the hospital was the partner of a victim of domestic violence who was inside.
