A Good Samaritan Law may have saved Greg’s life
Good Samaritan Laws provide legal protections for individuals who are present or provide assistance during an overdose.
Greg overdosed. The people with him picked him up, placed him in his own car and drove him to the parking lot of the hospital. There, they simply left him. They didn’t hit the panic button on the key fob, didn’t ring the ER door, didn’t walk a block away and call 911. An hour later he was discovered, but it was too late.
The detective said to me, “If we had a 911 Good Samaritan law or a Narcan law, your son might very well be alive.
