A Derbyshire policeman has given evidence at an inquest into the death of Rachael Slack, her son, Auden, and ex-partner, Andrew Cairns.
PC Lee Sadler was called to Rachael Slack's house on 2nd June and kicked-in the front door. Once the door gave way, PC Sadler saw another officer trying to resuscitate Ms. Slack's son, who was lying on the floor.
PC Sadler told the inquest he went with Auden Slack as he was taken to hospital in the ambulance.
He said he could see a number of stab wounds to Auden's body, and that lots of medical staff were 'rushing around him' at hospital, before adding, 'I don't believe he ever recovered.'
