Bloomberg telecaster Paul Gage died from aneurysm

MEDIA

22-08-2016

Former TV Bloomberg News presenter Paul Gage has passed away at the age of 59. He suffered “cataclysmic” internal bleeding while waiting for four hours on a trolley in a “congested” Casualty department.

Paul Gage, who used TV name Paul George, suffered ruthless abdominal pain at around 19 hours on March 17. He was assessed needing assistance within ten minutes when he was urgently brought to the Whittington Hospital, in north London. Gage was, however, compelled to wait for four hours on a trolley in distress. Around 23 hours, he was diagnosed with an alleged aneurysm in his stomach, the St Pancras Coroner’s Court heard.

Aneurysm is a weakness in the blood vessel wall. This was cracked at around midnight while Paul Gage waited for a scan. He was rushed to the nearby Royal Free Hospital where he left this world in the operation theatre.

According to Leena Savjani, a specialist medical negligence lawyer who is representing the family said they were “shattered”. “The family has been completely shattered by Paul Gage’s death and hope that the investigation will give answers to the questions and concerns they have concerning the handling of the patient at the Whittington Hospital’s Accident & Emergency department,” Savjani told.

Paul Gage is a cycling lover. After leaving Bloomberg, he launched the Muswell Hill Bikes, in Muswell Hill, north London, and was a faithful of local cycling club, the Muswell Hill Peloton.

Paul Gage’s wife Jo died of breast cancer a number of years before his death. They are survived by their three children.
