Woman dies after leaving ER for urgent care after waiting hours for treatment


The family of 25-year-old Shonna Ward is demanding answers after she waited so long in an emergency room that she left for urgent care and died. Ward went to the hospital for chest pains and trouble breathing and was seen for an EKG and chest x-ray, according to the medical examiner. Ward left for urgent care after writing on Facebook that she was told it could be 6 hours before she could see a doctor.
