ST. LOUIS – The surviving spouse of a man who suffered a heart attack at a St. Louis bakery alleges its owner failed to timely call 911.
Tanina Campieri filed a complaint on Dec. 7 in the St. Louis Circuit Court against Marconi Bakery and Salvatore Licata alleging wrongful death and negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Sept. 24, 2012, plaintiff's deceased spouse, Giuseppe Damiano Campieri, was at defendants' bakery when he had a heart attack and became unconscious and/or unresponsive. The suit states he sustained an extensive brain injury and needed medical treatment that cost more than $400,000. The suit states he died on Dec. 22, 2012, and the head injury caused or contributed to his death.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment in her favor in a fair and reasonable amount exceeding $25,000, plus costs and all other relief that is proper and just. She is represented by James D. O'Leary of O'Leary, Shelton, Corrigan, Peterson, Dalton & Quillin LLC in St. Louis.
