Family Hopes Their Tragedy Helps Others

EDMONDS, WA--It was just like any other morning when Jerry Truax made breakfast for his 16-year-old son Matthew in their Edmonds home September 13, 2013.

"I kidded him about whether he'd asked anybody out for the homecoming dance yet. He hadn't. I said, 'Well, you better get on it. it's coming up.'" Little did he know it would be the last time he'd ever see his son alive again.

Several hours later, Jerry got a call that's every parent's nightmare.

"There was a lot of noise and confusion in the background and I heard CPR. And the lady in the office said they were giving him CPR and I knew then he was in trouble."
