I don't know what the regional policies and procedures are for the local paramedics out there, but I'm willing to bet that the law would have protected this individuals right to refuse treatment provided he were deemed competent...

Actually it is completely irrelevant if paramedics were called and saved him since he would have been in the exact same situation later on, just like his father. Paramedics can't cure stupidity.
