“I said Jamie, Jamie, [but] Jamie didn’t look up,” she continued, adding that she tried to nudge him to wake up once again.

“Jamie’s not waking up, he’s not waking up, and I called my mom, who was outside, and she tried everything,” she added.

Onious and her mom call the ambulance service which reportedly arrived in 15 minutes. She said that they tried everything to resuscitate him but it was too late.

“They tried everything to resuscitate him, CPR, everything, but it was too late,” she said.
