Mario Deane had No chance of survival says US Pathologist

Mario Deane, the 31 year old man who died in hospital after being beaten while in police custody had no chance of survival a famed US pathologist has said.

According to a report from the Observer, extensive brain damage, causing swelling and haemorrhaging, was what led to the death of 31-year-old construction worker Mario Deane in August while he was in the custody of the Barnett Street police in Montego Bay.

“The brain damage was what caused Mario to die.

The injuries caused the swelling of the brain; he had haemorrhage in the brain stem.

  

And that would cause immediate loss of consciousness,” United States-based pathologist Dr Michael Baden disclosed during a press conference in Montego Bay, yesterday.

The brain stem is the region of the brain that connects the cerebrum with the spinal cord.

Dr Baden, who observed the autopsy on Deane’s corpse at the Cornwall Regional Hospital on Tuesday, said that the construction worker — who was a resident of Rosemount in St James — lost consciousness “within seconds of the injuries causing severe brain damage”.

He also disclosed that, from the results of the autopsy, the brain damage was so severe that Deane had no chance of survival, even as hospital records indicated that he was taken to hospital soon after he sustained the injuries.

“He had the haemorrhage into the lower part of the brain that made recovery not possible.

It was just a matter of how long he would survive before his heart stopped.

In this instance, it was three days,” Dr Baden noted.
