René-Charles Quirion La Tribune Sherbrooke – “I determined that it was a crime scene and that the patient was no longer being touched. “
Paramedic Daniel Gendron quickly noticed that Héliodore Dulac had died on his arrival on the Yard road in Milan in June 2018.
The paramedic was called to the stand on Monday at the trial of Ian Bélanger who is accused of the second degree murder of Héliodore Dulac at the Sherbrooke courthouse.
The emergency responder mentions having received a call for a patient in cardiac arrest around 6:05 p.m. on June 3, 2018.
Paramedics and Sûreté du Québec police arrived at the scene at about the same time.
Daniel Gendron made the decision not to perform resuscitation maneuvers.
“I saw a man lying on his left side in a fetal position. He had obviously been dead for some time. The lower side was purple. The body had a gray color. Seeing the victim, it was obvious that it was not a natural death. There weren't really any maneuvers to do. With the color, the wounds; I didn't see fit to maneuver. It was not a natural death scene ”testified Daniel Gendron.
He describes that Heliodore Dulac had injuries to his right foot, arms, back and swollen face.
Daniel Gendron testifies that the victim's pants and shirt were a little further from the body and that a tarpaulin with blood was also there.
“There were a lot of flies on the patient. He was gray-blue (…) There was no blood that matched the injuries he had, ”testifies the paramedic Gendron.
