'A dying father-of-two rang the emergency 999 number after being viciously stabbed, only to be put on hold and forced to listen to an automated message. “I’m going to die,” Liverpool Crown Court heard the man saying.
Paul Millea, 36, called the emergency services after being stabbed on June 17, but the court heard that because of the high volume of calls, he was put on hold. Millea was allegedly assaulted by Philip Daniels, 26, who is understood to have attacked the man on suspicion he was having an affair with his girlfriend.
Nigel Power QC, prosecuting, told the court Millea logged the first call at 11:10 pm, and said: "‘I’ve been stabbed in the chest… He stabbed me for nothing… I’m going to die.”
Power continued, “The operator says hold the line and then Mr Millea says he stabbed me like a nutter, I’m dying.”
“We only hear, sadly, a recorded voice saying that the call was in a queue because there were a high number of calls… Mr Millea obviously knew that he was dying because he said ‘I’m dying, I’m going to die, I can’t stay here? I’m dying.”
Emergency services arrived only 40 minutes later, by which time several people had tried to help the victim.
Millea was brought to hospital, where he died of his wounds shortly before 1:30am.'
