A sick patient who checked into emergency just before Brian Sinclair arrived remembers him.
Kathy Boddy testified today at an inquest looking into Sinclair's death that even though her contact with the man was fleeting she remembered him more than two years later when interviewed by Winnipeg police.
"I recall him having his head down," Boddy said.
"I thought he was just resting."
Boddy said when she left the waiting room about three hours later she observed Sinclair had moved from where she first saw him to another area in the room.
When asked why Sinclair stuck in her memory, Boddy said it was because the man used a wheelchair and he was a double amputee.
Sinclair, 45, died on Sept. 21, 2008, after waiting in the Health Scieces Centre's emergency department waiting room for 34 hours without being seen.
The inquest has been told an autopsy showed Sinclair may have died seven hours before staff was alerted by patients in the waiting room.
