A caller from Wichita Falls went to her friend’s house, Debbie, for a visit. When the caller approached the home, she found that the door was open. Inside she found Debbie with her head and knees in the tub, stiff and cold to the touch. The caller went to the office pool phone to call us for help. The caller stated that Debbie was an alcoholic and she wasn’t sure if she had been washing her hair in the tub or if she had passed out due to alcohol consumption. EMS was dispatched immediately and EDC supervisor Emily stayed on the line with the caller and gathered information. The caller refused to check for a pulse, advising that Debbie was beyond her help and needed EMS. We helped her to remain calm and know that help was on the way.
