Woman Having Severe Diabetic Attack Is Ripped From Her Car by Police, Handcuffed Face-down on Street
(KOAT) Shocking dash camera footage shows a diabetic woman being dragged out of her car by Santa Fe County sheriff deputies, all while she was having a diabetic episode. Revena Garcia’s blood sugar dropped so low that she became extremely disoriented and could not open her car door. Deputies assumed she was a drunk driver and broke through her window, ripped her limp body from the vehicle, handcuffed her facedown on the hot pavement, where they left her, motionless. “I was just lost, I was just lost,” Garcia said. She said her blood sugar was so low that she could have gone into a coma. Garcia showed no resistance and there was no reason to be so rough with her, to throw her to the ground, and to leave her there.
