Toby Hayden-Leigh, 45, from Maidstone, Kent, was joined by a group of people who refused to wear masks inside East Surrey Hospital
Insisting that he was the patient’s ‘McKenzie friend’, an untrained legal aide, calls for the patient’s oxygen to be removed, despite its very low levels, and ignored repeated requests to leave during the fiery line of 20 minutes.
When Mr. Hayden-Leigh and the others who were with the patient were told that they were putting themselves and others in grave danger by being there and, in their case, without a mask, they simply replied: “It is our own risk”.
The patient, who was seen coughing and struggling to breathe the entire time, removed his oxygen tube and demanded to go home, but was told by staff that he would not survive the trip.
The group’s leader, who insisted he was exempt from wearing a mask, added insult to injury by asking staff if Covid had been shown to exist, before he was finally expelled by security agents.
Images of the haunting incident have already been viewed thousands of times.
It shows the patient and his loved ones arguing with a young doctor, as he desperately fights to save the man from the virus.
The doctor warns the patient that if he removes the oxygen tube he will die, to which he replies, ‘Yes, so you keep saying. Let’s go.’
Mr. Leigh steps in and accuses the hospital of “lying” about the patient’s condition and keeping his family in the dark.
The doctor responds: ‘My main concern is his safety and at this moment you are making him unsafe. He has taken the oxygen from him, he is going to die if we don’t put it back on him.
The patient responds defiantly: “No, I am not.”
The doctor refuses to discuss the matter further until the oxygen tube is replaced, and the patient reluctantly agrees.
Appealing to his family, the doctor says: ‘You are not respecting our wishes when entering. You are going to spread Covid everywhere.
Mr. Leigh insists that “we are fine” and the patient, clearly struggling to breathe, asks, “What about my wishes?”
Then the doctor points to the patient’s oxygen levels on a monitor and says, ‘Seventy-three percent. You risk dropping dead at any moment.
The seriously ill man says “I want to go home” but is told, “You will die.” Once again, he dismisses medical advice.

The man’s loved ones continue to defy the doctor, but he stands his ground and insists that the patient will not survive without a constant supply of oxygen.
He says: ‘He has coronavirus pneumonia that affects both lungs. He takes steroids called dexamethasone. He is taking antibiotics to treat concurrent bacterial infections.
Hayden-Leigh says his treatment should be replaced with vitamin C, vitamin D and zinc, but he is told flatly: “None of those are proven treatments for coronavirus.”

He explodes: ‘I am an officer of the court. I’m warning you, if you put a hand on me and touch me, I’ll do it by assault. ‘
The doctor tells the patient that he needs a ventilator, but he shakes his head and says, ‘No way. Hurry up and get me out of here.
