Police are investigating the mysterious death of a 19-year-old man whose body was found at home 15 hours after he called an ambulance that never arrived.
Bradley Holder’s family were “heartbroken” after he died days before Christmas on December 19 despite asking for emergency aid at his home in Burslem, near Stoke on Trent.
Mr Holder himself called 999 at 18:12 on December 18, but the West Midlands Ambulance Service was apparently so busy they didn’t send him an ambulance.
A second 999 call was then made by someone else at the home at 9:04am on December 19, but Mr Holder was pronounced dead at the scene just minutes later.

StokeonTrentLive readers paid tribute to Mr Holder following his tragic death.
Teresa Barrett said: “I taught Brad fourth year. He was a lovely boy with a big heart who often made me smile.”
Kerry Pedley said: “Brad was a top boy. I’ve known him for years and he always had time for people and always had a smile on his face.’
Kaash Johnson added: “What a boy you were Brad.”
Mr Holder lived on Beaconsfield Drive in Blurton and had previously attended Ormiston Sir Stanley Matthews Academy.
The 19-year-old’s death is currently being treated as “unexplained” by Staffordshire Police. His family is devastated and desperate for answers.
Staffordshire Police called the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) after the man’s death. The IOPC has now closed all investigations without further action.
A police spokesman said: “The death continues to be treated as unsolved while we await the results of an autopsy and toxicology report. A file is being prepared for HM Coroner.’
Anyone who saw Bradley before his death was urged to call the police on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
