Kelly Via didn’t hear her alarm going off, but her boyfriend, Steve, did. He had gotten up earlier and knew something must be wrong when he couldn’t hear her moving after 20 minutes. He came into the room, and Kelly tried to stand up, but she couldn’t get to him. Steve helped her back to bed and asked her to raise her right arm. When she didn’t respond, he called 9-1-1.
