Two EMTs accused of ignoring a dying pregnant woman because they were on a break returned to work Thursday proclaiming their innocence.
Smiling and laughing, Jason Green and Melisa Jackson reported to FDNY headquarters at the end of their 30-day suspension for abandoning Au Bon Pain worker Eutisha Rennix.
"I'm relieved I still have a job," said Green as he hugged a co-worker and playfully swatted another on the shoulder outside Metrotech in downtown Brooklyn.
"This whole thing's been stressful," said Green. "I'm just hanging in there."
The dispatchers, who still face a criminal probe, were grabbing a bagel at a nearby Au Bon Pain when a worker told them 25-year-old Rennix was having trouble breathing. Rennix, who was six months pregnant, had collapsed and was in the back of the store.
Jackson called a fellow dispatcher to report the incident, but witnesses said she and Green did not try to help Rennix themselves. The mom and her premature baby died hours later.
