Teen overdose 911 call
Lori Michelle Puentes' unconscious 12-year-old son lay on her bed, spotted with dog feces, as he vomited an orange substance and nearly died in her Ridge Manor home March 27. The 40-year-old woman, apparently influenced by drugs or alcohol, called 911 but was hardly coherent enough to tell the dispatcher her address. Eventually, her boy's teenage friend came on the line and directed emergency personnel to the home. Puentes' son later told detectives he had overdosed on six of his mother's prescription pills..
