Woman dies after refusing to call ambulance for help

Posted:

DES MOINES (KWWL)--  A 72 year old woman died after spending four days on the floor of her home. Her husband told police she fell last Friday, and he couldn't lift her up. She refused to call an ambulance because she said it was too expensive.

The Des Moines Register says medics found JoAnn Knutson Tuesday afternoon. Her husband says he tried to wake his wife, and called an ambulance when she didn't respond.
