TWC Supervisor Told CSR To Stop Giving CPR And Get Back To Work, Employees Allege

After local news began investigating the death of a Time Warner Cable customer service rep, they made a shocking discovery. According to several sources at the scene, after the woman slumped at her desk, a co-worker began administering CPR, but was told to stop and get back to the phones by a supervisor.

WOIO reports the woman says she was told by another boss that she could be “held liable if something goes wrong.” However, under the “Good Samaritan Law,” this isn’t true. People are protected from being sued if they’re trying to help out in emergency situation.

Police told WOIO that they are reviewing the case.

Time Warner Cable released the following statement: “Time Warner responded appropriately to a medical emergency. Our company has procedures in place to respond to emergencies. We are saddened by the loss of one of our employees who was a co-worker and a friend. Our thoughts are with the family during this difficult time.”
