SUGAR HILL, Ga. — A woman was found alive in her bed, her legs decomposing and covered in maggots and cockroaches. Now, the caretakers are under investigation.

On Thursday, March 15, Gwinnett Fire was dispatched to the 4600 block of Pine Tree Circle to an apartment complex for a woman that was unconscious.

According to the incident report, when firefighters arrived they found an obese woman living in deplorable conditions.

About a month ago, the same crew came to the home to transport the woman from the hospital to her home. Because of her weight, they used a "Mega Mover," a tarp that is used for moving larger patients.

According to the incident report, they left the tarp at the home. When they arrived to the call on March 15, the tarp, which is normally white, was covered in feces and had turned completely brown and black.

"The patient was still on top of the same mega mover they used a month ago," the incident report read.

Firefighters said they also saw the woman’s legs were completely black and showing signs of decomposition. She was covered in maggots and cockroaches that were eating her flesh, according to the incident report. Her condition is unknown at this time.

The Gwinnett County Fire Department stated that “they did not believe she would live much longer and felt a moral obligation to report this.”
