The word is he inhaled vomit aka aspirated. Thus drowned on his own throw up.

If EMT was there they would of been able to keep him breathing with tube and so on till they get to the ER to get fluid/food out.

Yes I understand that. I guess more details are needed because apparently his buddy kept him in the back of his truck for an hour without saying anything. If that is the case I can see his friend getting manslaughter.

Except that one witness said that the deceased was feeling sick in the parking lot after the event...so EMS might have been gone anyway. From what little has been posted, it is unclear where he aspirated - for all we know, he could have made it home and vomited in his sleep.
While I won't disagree that EMS should probably have been onhand for such an event; their presence wouldn't necessarily have changed the outcome.

Or did it take an hour to drive him home? We really don't know much at all about this. Maybe Eddie should've asked his friend to drive him to the hospital instead of his house. Maybe they were trying to decide whether he wanted to pay the medical bills and that took an hour. It's too early with too few facts to say.

According to post number 40 the ambulance arrived at the event and took him away. At which point the friend asked for the snake .

Hmmm - I haven't been able to view the other discussion, so I was unaware of that post. Sad situation...did anybody do anything before the arrival of the ambulance? What was his condition when they arrived?

Which is why The info is conflicting, because some say it was his house, then some say EMS took him from the Store.

He did not pass " within an hr" it was at least few hours later. His friend put him in the truck and everyone thought they were gone. His buddy said he was taking him home, instead his buddy watched him pass away without doing anything to help. Also it took EMS more than 20 minutes to get there after the first call. Eddy was asked if he was ok when he was throwing up and he said he was ok, he just wanted his friend to take him home. The friend also had the balls to ask for Eddies snake that he won after the ambulance took him away.
This post is so contradictory it's aggravating. They say Eddie's friend watched him pass away in his truck without doing anything to help. Then the ambulance took away his corpse? Yet they were sat there for "a few hours". And it only took EMS 20+ minutes to get there, so why did they allow them to sit there for hours?

At any rate: Asphyxiating on vomit is very common among people who have passed out drunk, yet I don't see EMS personnel at bars where there might be drinking contests. I have to wonder how this will all pan out.

It sounds like it happened at the store.
