CCTV shows Tanya Day falling multiple times in police cell 4

Footage of the final conscious hours of Aboriginal woman Tanya Day has been released after her family told the Victorian coroners court that not releasing it would render her suffering – like the suffering of so many Indigenous people – invisible. The footage shows Day being arrested for being drunk in public on 5 December 2017 and put in the police cells for four hours to 'sober up'. She hit her head on the cell wall about 50 minutes later and was declared by police welfare checks to be fine, despite CCTV footage showing her condition was deteriorating. At 8pm police went to rouse her and discovered a bruise on her forehead. She died in hospital 17 days later.

When you're so drunk you "fall" yourself to death....how is that the police's fault?

We have a wildly different understanding of the meaning "fall" and i only seen het hit her head once. Maybe if she wasnt so dam drunk. Blame the family for not observing her behavior in the first place

There is no crime here. People should take responsibility for their own actions and stop looking for someone to blame.

The alcohol had a part in her death. This was not negligent. Plain and simple severe drunkenness.

The real cause of her death was extraordinary consumption of alcohol due to lot of stress for which family is responsible.

How is this anyone's fault but her own? I don't understand

None of those hits were hard. That third "fatal" fall was not a bad fall. I suspect that she had a stroke. Even too much alcohol will poison a person to death.

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve got drunk and fallen and hit my head against a wall and it hurt like hell but not once did I ever blame the cops or “anyone” for my death.
