13-year-old Alabama Girl Dies From Inhalant Abuse


Phil Eudy, of North Carolina and father of 13-year-old Rebecca Eudy, is speaking out against inhalant abuse.  Rebecca died last week after being found in the bathtub of her mother's home in Alabama.  A can of computer duster was nearby.

Mr. Eudy, "wants to tell parents everywhere."  He believes his daughter never intended to die.  That she took a break from watching a movie to take a bath and decided to get a quick "high" by huffing before she got into the bathtub.  Investigators told the family that she probably passed out and drowned in the bathtub.

Eudy says that huffing was something he was not aware of or considered a potential hazard for his daughter.  Eudy wants to help spread awareness and education to other families and urges parents to look for canisters of household products in their child's room, watch for missing items, or to check and see if items have been moved around.

This is very sad to hear of. It is brave to speak out and be open about this, her life had so much meaning and this will hopefully prevent others from thinking its a safer way to get high. This is a bad thing that happened to a good person. I send my prayers and love to the family and friends.
