She remembered when she rushed to the hospital to see him there.

“He was deteriorating really fast,” Jessica said in the Facebook video. “The lack of oxygen in his brain was causing his body to shut down and his organs and everything was just not working right. And there was something wrong with his stomach and it kind of had this smell.”
