Nathan Reynolds

CASE №00040
NAME: Nathan Reynolds
COUNTRY: Australia
RIGHTS VIOLATION: Police arbitrariness
YEAR: 2021
CASE INFORMATION:

Indigenous man Nathan Reynolds, 36, died in his prison cell at John Moroney Correctional Facility in Berkshire Park on September 1, 2018, from bronchial asthma — one week before he was expected to be released.

March 2021 deputy state coroner said on the night of Mr. Reynolds’s death he required emergency treatment. His sister Taleah Reynolds said she was furious and that her brother’s death was “preventable”. She also said he several times went to the prison clinic because he wasn’t feeling well. She said it was never any secret that he was asthmatic.

The inquest heard Mr. Reynolds, who was struggling to breathe, urgently called for help. Prison guard arrived in 11 minutes and called an ambulance. The registered nurse on duty arrived at the scene two minutes later. By that time, Mr. Reynolds was already unresponsive.

In April 2021 Reynolds’ sisters attended a protest in Sydney to stop Indigenous deaths in custody and told the crowd of protestors they are still waiting for justice.
