Special Report Transcript Episode 25, Section 2, Time 03:34

It was very lonely in that house that night. We all had a sense of being a long way away from everyone. I sat on a chair in front of where my father lay dying. I think I must have been in shock as I sat there; rigid, unable to move, even when my sister begged me to hold my father while she got up to go to the loo. It is hard for me to recall the exact sequence of events that night. But time passed, the phone was dead and we waited for someone to come. The police arrived over an hour after we’d made the one call to them before the phone had stopped working and it was only when I talked to the ambulance man that I let myself realize what I knew was true. And that my father wasn’t going to be alright and in fact he died sometime before.
