Last night was one of the strangest and heart wrenching times I have ever had. Last night my good friend and neighbor had passed away His name was Joe and was a recipient of the Bronze star with a V for valor during his service of Vietnam as a US Marine 0311. I had to go up and help his wife and kids with the DD 214s and get there papers in order. After all that was done my buddy, roomate, and I were BBqing and drinking beer me and my friend Nate were out back at the grill and my roomate went inside when we hear her scream and a really loud crashing noise. We run inside and there was a young man I had never met before in my life laying inside my bathroom trying to drink dawn dish detergent with his head in the toilet like it was one of those salon things. My buddy grabs him as to restrain him when I notice that this guy was having a drug over dose his lips were blue and he was very weak. After I determined he wasn't a threat at that point I grabbed him and fireman carried him to the living room couch and laid him down I kept asking him what his name was to keep him talking and awake. His name was Charles, he was a young man probably still in high school. While I am there with him my roomate and buddy were both on 9-11 trying to get the police and ambulance, it was at this point Charles started having violent seizures he damn near bit my finger off while trying to put a sock in his mouth to keep him from biting off his tongue or breaking his teeth. When the cops and paramedics showed up he was still really bad with seizures and they hooked him up to the box he had flatlined 2 times in my house and was not able to breath on his own, I don't know if they had resuscitated him last night or not I did everything I could to help this guy. Last night was one of the strangest I have ever had.

A sad ordeal indeed, at least you done what you could, you seem like a good person to have around in an emergency.

That was very strange last night I have never in my life ever had a stranger run into the front door of my house like that, my german shepards were flipping out it was crazy.

Omg that's crazy. I've never actually seen anyone die before. I watched my dog die, he waited until we all gathered around him, and then he quit breathing with one last sigh. It was sad, but it was also kind of perfect in a way. I can't imagine a stranger running in my house to die though. Sucks.

I wonder more and more why kids don't just stick to the green. At the very least it won't kill you. I'm scared to have kids hearing stories like this.

You did your best.

I wonder why he was trying to drink the dawn dishwashing liquid? Is it something he knew would neutralize something? The dishwashing liquid must have been taken from the kitchen. That would probably be a sulfur compound in the soap. I'm not up on self medicating overdoses myself. That just seems strange.Well, you tried anyway.

I'm sick of seeing stuff like this, my buddy dies in the hospital and then that happens kind of screwed up my weekend.

Yeah I don't know why he was drinking the dish detergent but when I say he was whacked out of his skull I really mean it. Things got real, real fast when he started going into violent seizures he was bleeding and it was just all kinds of crazy.

Unfortunately I think you are right, I probably won't ever forget it. I hope that they found his family, at first I thought I was going to have to shoot someone and then it turned out that I had to help someone

Probably tried to get himself vomit whatever drugs were in his System. I'm glad you tried to save his life OP.

Edit* whyamIhere beat me to it.

I am so sorry for that boy and what you had to experience! It warms my heart that you did the right thing and helped him the best you can instead of seeking to hurt him for breaking into your house. You're a good man!

My heart goes out to you. And im telling you now. You will never forget it. I have seen close up through an accident. And to this day i think this is where most of my problems come from. But just hold on to the fact you were there for him. That will mean a lot
. You did your best and thats all you can do in situations like this

Wow! This must have been a super scary experience. I'm glad that you and your family/friends are ok. This young man must have had a troubled last few hours on earth. I wonder why the heck he was drinking dishwasher soap and why he was in your house.

Many times I have had a friend almost die in my arms. Once I've held a friend in death. Its not easy friend. Do whatever you can to keep your mind busy and whatever it is, do it with a friend or two!!

Sorry for the discomfort, Keep your chin up and keep moving foreward.

My Best Brotherman

Dude, you are a hero. You make me proud to be a part of the
human race you occupy.

Most people couldn't or wouldn't have helped the man at all--just
ran out and protected themselves.

Way to go...

Sad experience, but even sadder that he was so young. I see lots of deaths in my profession but always elderly people....I find it really hard to deal with young people's illnesses, let alone deaths.

You have done really well, you were there for him in his last moments and tried everything you could.......don't forget that, because of you, he didn't die alone.

Stay safe!

Nothing heroic just doing the right thing in a strange situation, any marine would have done the same, hell any decent human being would have done the same I would like to think.
