Nothing fails like prayers, cause of death = religion
After returning from church to find their son not breathing, the parents of Calgary teenager Alexandru Radita prayed for two hours before calling emergency services, court heard Wednesday.
Shauna Mitchell, an investigator with the Medical Examiner’s office, said she was dispatched to the Citadel Drive N.W. home of Emil and Rodica Radita to look into a sudden death.
She said she asked the couple when they had last seen their son alive.
“They said they went to church at, I think it was after 1800 hours, and they came home at about 2000 hours and that’s when the father said that he wasn’t breathing, so they prayed and they didn’t call EMS until sometime around 2200 hours,” Mitchell said.
She told Crown prosecutor Marta Juzwiak there were multiple members of the couple’s church in the home.
“They were in the home praying together,” Mitchell said.
And she said it was possible the boy wasn’t breathing even before the couple went to church, as she was given conflicting reports from them.
She said the mother said Alexandru was breathing at 6 p.m. that day, but his father said he wasn’t.
