95-year-old woman using walking frame tasered by police at care home in Australia

Police in Australia tasered a 95-year old grandmother, who is now in critical condition.

Staff discovered Clare Nowland holding a steak-knife outside her bedroom. Officers were dispatched to the care home.

After talking to her for a few minutes, they fired the Taser when she refused to drop the knife.

She had dementia and was using a walker at the time.


Peter Cotter, Assistant Commissioner said: “At that time she was being tasered, she was approaching the police at a very slow pace.”

Ms Nowland was taken to the hospital, where she is reportedly fading in-and-out of consciousness with her family at her bedside.

The incident occurred at the Yallambee Care Home in Cooma. Cooma is located about 300km (186 miles) southwest of Sydney.

The officer who used the Taser is no longer on duty and now the homicide unit is involved.

New South Wales Police have said that although body cameras captured the incident, it’s not in the public’s interest to release footage as an investigation is still ongoing.
