Teenage Jehovah’s Witness refuses blood transfusion and dies

A teenage Jehovah’s Witness who was crushed by a car refused a blood transfusion before he died.

Joshua McAuley, 15, is understood to have declined the treatment advised by doctors and was not overruled by members of his family. McAuley was treated at Selly Oak hospital in Birmingham after he was pinned against a wall by a car in a freak accident.
