A Covid-hit Irish pensioner  was ‘rescued’ from a hospital by an Italian anti-vaxxer – only for him to die of the disease days later. 

Covid patient Joe McCarron, 67, from Dungloe, County Donegal, was encouraged to leave Letterkenny University Hospital by his anti-vaxxer ‘friends’ on Tuesday, September 14. 

However, he was rushed back into hospital by ambulance less than two days later, suffering from serious breathing difficulties, and died a week later on September 24. 

In a video that was widely-shared online, Joe is seen visibly struggling to breathe as his anti-vaxxer ‘friend’ Italian Antonio Mureddu argues with doctors before taking him home from the hospital.

A Covid-hit Irish pensioner  was ‘rescued’ from a hospital by an Italian anti-vaxxer – only for him to die of the disease days later. 

Covid patient Joe McCarron, 67, from Dungloe, County Donegal, was encouraged to leave Letterkenny University Hospital by his anti-vaxxer ‘friends’ on Tuesday, September 14. 

However, he was rushed back into hospital by ambulance less than two days later, suffering from serious breathing difficulties, and died a week later on September 24. 

In a video that was widely-shared online, Joe is seen visibly struggling to breathe as his anti-vaxxer ‘friend’ Italian Antonio Mureddu argues with doctors before taking him home from the hospital.

One unidentified doctor is seen on camera leaning down to talk to Joe, who is sitting in a wheelchair breathing heavily, pleading with him that leaving the hospital would risk ‘endangering’ his life. 

The doctor says: ‘You have the right to decide what you want to do, but I don’t think what he [Antonio] is saying is right at all.

‘You’re barely able to breathe now. We want you to stay to help you.’ 
.

Antonio interjects saying: ‘If you stay here, they’re going to f****** kill you, Joe,’ and accuses the medical staff of ‘killing people’.

The doctor continues speaking to Joe, saying: ‘I’m very worried about you. I want you to stay [in hospital]. 

‘I think he is saying something very dangerous. What he is saying is wrong and very dangerous and I think he is endangering your life.

‘It’s a very difficult disease that you have, and I’m not lying to you, you could die, but this could be your best chance in the hospital. Getting the oxygen and getting the support we’re giving to you.’

However, Antonio rebuts the medics, claiming that they are ‘lying’, saying: ‘It’s better if he dies in the house than die in here… he’s going to die with us.’ 
.

Joe, who was a former radio DJ, then left the hospital and returned home, where his condition worsened. 

Antonio carried out the ‘rescue’ with assistance from members of the Common Law Information Centre and in one video published after Joe had left the hospital, he claimed that it was Joe who had requested his assistance. 

Following Joe’s readmission to Letterkenny University Hospital on Thursday morning, his wife of 38 years, Una, issued a family statement critisising the actions of his ‘reckless’ friends. 

The statement said: ‘Una would like to thank the staff and apologise for the actions of Joe’s so-called reckless friends earlier in the week.

‘They did not help Joe’s recovery in any way. We would encourage everyone to follow proper medical advice.’
.

Joe was put on a ventilator and he died in hospital on Friday without regaining consciousness.

His funeral was held on Sunday, September 26, at his local parish of St Crona’s Church in Dungloe.
