Woman, 95, Who Was Tasered By Police Officer In Care Home Has Died.

According to authorities, Clare Nowland, the 95-year-old woman who a police officer tasered at a nursing home, has passed away.

Nowland, who had dementia, fell and broke her skull after Constable Kristian White blasted her with a stun gun at her retirement home in New South Wales, Australia, on Wednesday last week.

Nowland died in the hospital, surrounded by family and loved ones, according to New South Wales Police.

It is with immense sorrow that they confirm the passing of 95-year-old Clare Nowland in Cooma tonight (Wednesday, May 24, 2023), stated a statement. Shortly after 7 o’clock this evening, Mrs. Nowland passed away peacefully in the hospital with her family and loved ones by her side. They had requested privacy during this terrible and trying time. Their hearts go out to those who were fortunate enough to know, love, and be loved by Mrs. Nowland during a life filled with family, kindness, and community.

After employees discovered Nowland with a knife, police were summoned to Yallambee Lodge.

Nowland was tasered and suffered a cracked skull after trying to disarm her.

One of the cops engaged in the event was charged with causing great bodily injury.

Within the last hour, New South Wales Police have commenced legal action against a 33-year-old senior constable from Monaro Police District for the offenses of recklessly resulting in serious injury, assault occasioning actual bodily harm, and assault, said NSW Police Commissioner Karen Webb during a press conference.

He is scheduled to appear in Cooma Local Court on Wednesday, July 5, this year. This issue is now before the court; there’s little else she can say about it except that the Nowland family has been informed of this development, and their thoughts and prayers are with Mrs. Nowland and her family this evening. She would also like to take a moment to thank the detectives who have worked around the clock on this to get to this point within seven days of that accident. It was a horrible incident involving Mrs. Nowland, and the serious charges are now before the court.

The whole event was captured on the police officers’ body cameras and used as proof in the inquiry.

Commissioner Webb earlier said that she would not watch the video until all of the statements and other material had been evaluated.

It may be the case in the future where she has to make a decision based on a brief of proof, without being tainted by having seen a part of the brief without context, Webb said on Monday. It’s critical that they stick to the process. She will make her decision objectively.
