Without Warning

Subject: 
Alcohol overdose - alcohol death
Minutes Long: 
17

When Kathy Lutz was carried home unconscious, her worried parents put her to be     to “sleep it off”.  Brandon Popek was passed out at a party and his friends thought he would “sleep it off”.  Both were young, both were healthy, and, the next morning, both were dead.  The stories in this video told by the surviving family members are moving, unforgettable and instructive.  More young people die from overdosing on alcohol than in DWI crashes.  In addition, as parents tell us and the video vividly shows, it happens without warning.  By drinking enough alcohol rapidly, before they pass out, a person can ingest a fatal dose.   After they pass out, the alcohol still in the stomach continues to move into the blood stream where it depresses breathing and heartbeat, and they die.
