Brian Cardall, the 32-year old son of KSL (Salt Lake City, Utah) Editorial Director Duane Cardall, dies after being tasered by police. Condolences to the family.
The Washington County (Utah) Undersheriff Jake Adams says that after being hit by the taser, the man became unconscious. Paramedics treated him, but he was pronounced dead at a hospital. [LINK] [LINK]
So, would he have died ~ right then ~ if the taser had not been used? I think it's an obvious question. And I think that the true answer is pretty obvious too. Examine the timeline. Do the math. What are the odds?
But this tragic death will probably be marked down as yet another 'Excited Delirium' death. It happens all the time, especially when tasers are involved.
