Apparently a woman was dying in a Gala bingo hall recently and it has been reported that bosses wouldn’t stop the bingo game.
The woman had turned blue and collapsed but staff at Gala hall had apparently insisted it was policy to keep the game running. The bingo caller had continued calling the numbers and the victim was later confirmed dead on arrival at hospital.
A member of Gala Bingo, had attended to the lady while waiting on paramedics arriving but the BINGO game just continued.
One bingo player at the club commented “It’s a tricky one. Some folk think they should stop but I guarantee they’d get complaints if they did.”
Another member added: “Some of these games are linked to other halls so you can’t just stop.
“There are a lot of older people playing and it’s quite a charged atmosphere so medical problems aren’t that unusual. It’s accepted that the show must go on.”
Gala Bingo said “The death was a tragedy and their thoughts were with the woman’s family”.
They added: “Our initial approach in such instances is to create as calm an environment as possible, to reduce the stress for the customer in question, their friends and family and our qualified first aider until the emergency services arrive”
“In this case, it was felt the best way of dealing with this particular incident was to continue with the bingo and Our staff are trained to deal with situations like this and carried out all the correct procedures until the paramedics arrived.”
