Coroner: Disabled Son Dies Day after Father
BLACKSBURG, S.C. (AP) - Authorities say a 34-year-old disabled man has died from dehydration after his father died from a heart problem and there was no one around to help.
Cherokee County Coroner Dennis Fowler said the bodies were found by deputies Wednesday after someone who mowed the lawn for the men didn't get an answer at their door.
Fowler says an autopsy determined 66-year-old Edward Reynolds died Monday from a heart problem, while his son, Edward Heath Reynolds, died the next day from dehydration.
Fowler says the son was totally dependent on his father for care.
