Nice find! Now what is the reason behind the lie? I mean how much difference does it make if he died 3 days later other than it pushes up the timeline for his being sick I would guess? Or that Ebola is deadlier in a shorter amount of time than was first thought?
John Mulligan: Early Saturday morning he had become very critically ill and was placed on a respirator.
Scott Pelley: He was intubated.
John Mulligan: He was intubated.
Scott Pelley: Tube down his throat?
John Mulligan: Tube down his throat. He had a dialysis catheter placed because he was not making any urine, but he needed to. He was heavily sedated and he had tears running down his eyes, rolling down his face, not just normal watering from a sedated person. This was in the form of tears. And I grabbed a tissue and I wiped his eyes and I said, "You're going to be okay. You just get the rest that you need. Let us do the rest for you." And it wasn't 15 minutes later I couldn't find a pulse. And I lost him. And it was the worst day of my life. This man that we cared for, that fought just as hard with us, lost his fight. And his family couldn't be there. And we were the last three people to see him alive. And I was the last one to leave the room. And I held him in my arms. He was alone.
