WPTV.com is reporting that Martin Memorial Health Systems has released a report on the incident involving employees taking photographs of a shark attack victim. According to the report, the hospital investigation involved interviews with over 50 people. As a result of the findings, “some employees received warnings, suspensions, demotions and loss of position,” for taking photos of the victim and emailing them. However, according to a TCPalm.com article reports that “no one was fired,” according to a written statement from Martin Memorial chief marketing communications officer, Miguel Coty.
The details seem fairly limited from Martin Memorial public response to this incident, due to a policy that prohibits discussing personnel issues. Coty was quoted as saying, “We have determined that these inappropriate actions were taken by good people who exercised poor judgment.”
The TCPalm.com article also had the following tribute video for the victim.
