September 18, 2019


HAVE FACED ANY CHARGES AT ALL IF ONLY HE HAD STAYED AT THE SCENE. REPORTING LIVE IN DALLAS, ANDRE LUCIO, CBS 11 NEWS. TO A 4-YEAR-OLD WHO WAS SO FULL OF LIFE UNTIL SHE GOT SICK, MOM AND DAD WHO LIVE IN GARLAND THOUGHT SHE HAD A COLD LAST SUNDAY. THAT’S HOW IT STARTED. BY TUESDAY, SHE WAS IN THE E.R. AND BY THURSDAY THIS WEEK, SHE WAS GONE. SHE RUSHED TO THE E.R., SHE HAD PNEUMONIA, BY THE TIME THEY GOT HER, HER LUNGS WERE SO FULL WITH PNEUMONIA, SHE ENDED UP PASSING. Reporter: HIS 4-YEAR-OLD DIED JUST DAYS AGO FROM THE FLU. SHE WASN’T RUNNING A FEVER, WE JUST KNEW SHE WAS VERY SLUGGISH AND SHE WASN’T EATING. LIKE I SAID, THAT COUGH, IT WAS A DRY COUGH AND SHE STARTED SPITTING. MY WIFE SAID SHE SEEMED LIKE LITTLE DISCHARGE, BROWNISH COLOR. YOU SEE ANY OF THOSE SIGNS, YOU STOP WHAT YOU’RE DOING, I DON’T CARE IF YOU’RE AT WORK OR YOUR SPOUSE CALLS YOU, YOU GO TO THE EMERGENCY ROOM. YOU LET THEM CHECK FOR PNEUMONIA. Reporter: NOW HE HOPES HIS PAIN WILL AT LEAST HELP SAVE EVEN ONE LIFE. THINK ABOUT MY BABY, THAT TEARS ME DOWN, MAN. THAT’S WHAT I WAS LIVING FOR. I DON’T WANT TO LET NOTHING BAD HAPPEN TO HER. I USED TO PREACH THAT TO HER EVERY SINGLE DAY, DADDY’S GOING TO BE THERE. NOW I’M LETTING YOU KNOW I WASN’T THERE. I DIDN’T EVEN KNOW. I DIDN’T KNOW THAT SHE HAD PNEUMONIA. I DID KNOW YOU GET PNEUMONIA FROM THE FLU. THAT AIN’T NOTHING TO PLAY WITH, YOU KNOW WHAT I’M SAYING? BECAUSE OF IT I LOST AN ANGEL. THAT GIRL WAS BEAUTIFUL, SMART, INTELLIGENT, SHE WAS MY WORLD. AGAIN THEY THOUGHT SHE HAD A COLD LAST SUNDAY. ASHANTI IS THE SEVENTH FLU- RELATED DEATHS IN DALLAS
