Woman in Nelson, B.C. suffers heart attack after being spit upon by man refusing to wear mask


A hotel worker in Nelson, B.C., suffered a heart attack shortly after a confrontation with a patron who refused to wear a mask and wouldn’t leave the hotel’s coffee shop. Rob Little, manager of The Adventure Hotel, says it happened last Friday when their accountant was called to help deal with a man who was shouting and ignoring new provincial rules to wear a mask to slow the spread of COVID-19. Police were called and Little says about 90 minutes later, the accountant, who’s in her 50s, collapsed from a heart attack that required her immediate transfer to hospital in Kelowna.
