Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board says it is investigating an incident in which a woman died in an ambulance queueing outside Morriston hospital.

Sonia Powell died yesterday afternoon after being transferred from another hospital.

We are aware of the tragic day Mrs Powell’s family experienced yesterday and offer our sincere condolences.

The Health Board is reviewing all aspects of what happened and we are currently discussing these with the family.

Yesterday was a busy day for Emergency Departments and this was intensified at Morriston by 20 emergency ambulances arriving and departing within a short space of time. At its peak there were 12 operational ambulances outside the department but not all had patients on board.

Escalation plans were activated in the morning and the department was well staffed.
