Sigh... the lengths some people will go just to be able to use the carpool lane...
He probably figured that reporting the death could postpone his mother's trip by 24 hours or more as he would be interrogated and everything,
especially since he knew that drugs were at least a factor if not the primary cause. With a 90 something year old woman, maybe she was going to miss
an important doctors appointment or a prescription refill or some other important event that a 90 something year old person should not have to miss
because of a 32 year old persons drug problem. I don't know I'm just trying to understand this. Maybe he had a domineering mother and was literary
afraid of delivering the news that her homecoming would be delayed by a substantial amount of time.
ETA- Just because she "slumped over" doesn't mean she was dead. He still might have been able to save her depending on circumstances. I once had to
dial 911 after a friend OD'd on heroin. He slumped over and stopped breathing except for the occasional scary guttural sound like his body was trying
to breathe, and would not wake up even after I slapped him in the face a couple times real hard. The operator had me do chest compressions until the
paramedics arrived. Luckily the song "stayin alive" was playing on the radio so I was able to stay in perfect rhythym.
Just kidding about the "stayin alive" on the radio part. But no it was a rather serious situation. Later on he seemed to have the attitude that he
would've been just fine and seemed rather annoyed that I called the paramedics who gave him a drug called Naloxone which immediately canceled the
effects of the heroin, including the strong high, and after he woke up on my living room floor they urged him to go get checked out at the hospital
even though he seemed to be fine. The cop who showed up found that he had some old warrants from another county but not serious enough to arrest him
unless the cop wanted to, so the cop helped urge him to the hospital by giving him a choice, hospital or jail. We kinda wanted him to go so we could
decompress from that very stressful situation and plus we wanted to appear to be on the side of the authorities present so we also urged him to go
"for the betterment of his health"... After that I stopped letting other people get high in my house. But after they all left I got real high to ease
the stress. But I can handle my #.
