Jason Green and Melissa Jackson, the two emergency medical technicians suspended without pay for abandoning a pregnant woman, might now face jail time for her death.

On December 9th, Eutisha Revee Rennix, six months pregnant, collapsed at Au Bon Pain, the eatery where she was working.

The office of the Emergency Medical Service dispatch center, was directly above Au Bon Pain. Two EMTs, Green and Jackson, were on site for their break, but as Rennix gasped for air on the floor of the shop, they left with their bagels after advising her co-workers to call 911.

"We've known them for years," said Au Bon Pain employee Tareen Brown, 29. "We thought they'd do something ... [but] they said there was nothing they could do."

"They wouldn't put in any effort," said barista Lourdes Colon, 19. "She was lying on the floor and they just told me call 911."
