Why did they save her?’ Great-grandfather of tragic Star Hobson says prison medics should have let murderer Savannah Brockhill DIE when she suffered two heart attacks in jail
- Savannah Brockhill, 28, suffered two cardiac arrests in HMP Styal, Cheshire
- In both instances she was resuscitated and given life-saving CPR by medics
- She was on remand and waiting to hear murder charges in Star Hobson trial
- Brockhill was jailed for life after she was found guilty of murdering the toddler
- And now Star’s family have hit out at the medics’ decision to twice save Brockhill
The family of tragic toddler Star Hobson have hit out at the prison medics who saved her, arguing she should have been left to die after suffering two separate seizures while behind bars.
Savannah Brockhill, 28 was jailed for life after she was found guilty of murdering the 16-month-old during a campaign of abuse at her West Yorkshire home last June.
Self-proclaimed ‘psycho’ Brockhill collapsed twice and suffered cardiac arrest at HMP Styal in Cheshire while on remand for the toddler’s murder just two days before the trial.
She was revived both times by prison medics, who rushed to her aid and performed lifesaving CPR on her.
Now, little Star’s great-grandfather Frank Smith, 68, told the Sun how he wished the medics would have let Brockhill die instead, claiming it was unfair in the wake of the harrowing death of his great-granddaughter.
