911 Audio: Mother Calls While Son Overdoses on Heroin
The recording of a woman calling for medical support after finding her son unconscious was played Orland Fire Battalion Chief Mike Schofield during the Blink of an Eye seminar about risky behavior, including drug use.
The call itself is only about five minutes.
According to Orland Fire Battalion Chief Mike Schofield, Orland firefighter-paramedics can get to anywhere in Orland Park, Orland Hills and a section of unincorporated Cook County in about that time.
But as a mother screams into the phone, panicked after finding her unconscious son and they wait for an emergency crew to arrive and save him, the call seems to be longer.
