Three investigations are underway into the death of Joyce Echaquan, the 37-year-old Indigenous woman who recorded her final moments alive in a hospital bed, as staff made racist and abhorrent remarks to her.
Echaquan, a member of the Atikamekw Nation of Manawan, went to the Joliette hospital after experiencing stomache pains and died a few days later.
Her death is sparking outrage across the country and bringing into the spotlight the need to tackle systemic racism in health care.
As Felicia Parrillo reports, Echaquan's friends and family say this wasn't an isolated incident.
