27. “I Hope That Nice Man On The Floor Is Ok”
The call was for an older woman lying in bed. When we get there, the smell is horrendous of a dead body.
There are millions of flies everywhere, and a little old lady is lying in the bed, alive. About five feet away, there is a body covered up by a sheet.
The lady was a dementia patient, and her husband (the deceased) was the primary caregiver. Based on the number of flies and state of decomposition, the police estimated the guy had been dead for about three weeks.
The woman must have been getting some food out of the refrigerator, but it was totally empty by the time we arrived.
The creepiest part happened on the way to the hospital with the woman, she said, ‘I hope that nice man on the floor is OK.’
