But Diane Nike jordan, who witnessed this incident last Friday, said: ‘It ended up being absolutely disgusting.
‘I ended up being there with the daughter and brother, and we had been all sitting close to enjoying ourselves, merely chatting away, when an announcement came within the microphone saying a woman had passed out but them to were going to st
ay playing the Party Xtra bingo.
‘We weren’t playing this specific game and many of us were just talking to one another until we realized paramedics had turned up. It was additional serious than many of us first thought. They were doing CPR on her for a good a quarter-hour before some more arrived and they were supplying her electric bumps her.
‘A good 15-20 minutes as soon as the first announcement, they made another saying the key game would end up being delayed. A few people around us were slightly anxious and upset by these times because of what they are able to see.
‘She wasn’t protected up, she was at full view involving everybody. The whole incident was at full view involving everybody.
‘A few people including myself suggested we ought to stop playing bingo altogether and just have a recess time for it to get her fixed. ”

‘She collapsed right in the heart of the hall with tables and seats either side of her. People were kommet playing bingo and she was a student in the aisle. There were no respect shown to that lady or the customers can use in the area. Not everybody desired to play bingo. There were a number of people getting very upset concerning this. Visually, it was very upsetting.
‘If they had made an announcement to say they weren’t likely to continue playing bingo until it had been sorted out and the lady was consumed in the ambulance i don’t think there would’ve been any dilemma whatsoever.
‘There was a place outside, a huge car park, where people may have gone and patiently lay. It wasn’t pouring down rain or anything. They might have cleared many space and offered her some self-worth. They didn’t even move folks on the tables near to the lady. They continued playing bingo though this woman was near to their legs.
