BAKERSFIELD, Calif. -- A man died Thursday morning after being arrested by Kern County Sheriff's deputies. ...25-year-old Rory McKenzie ... Deputies went to an apartment on the 900 block of Feliz Drive in east Bakersfield and used a taser and sheriff's dog when Rory McKenzie resisted arrest, according to a sheriff's office news release. Deputies noticed he had stopped breathing and took him to Kern Medical Center, where he died. [LINK]
I have no further information about the above incident. But I'm willing to bet that Mr. McKenzie was either tasered several times, or was tasered across his chest (with one dart in the upper left and the other further down). More than likely, it was either one or the other.
Why would a 25-year old suddenly stop breathing?
