From today's news we have:
Pair 'left man to die from heroin overdose'
A WEST Australian man has been charged after allegedly leaving a man who overdosed on heroin in a car to die while he dined with a friend at a Chinese restaurant and socialised at a hotel.
Detectives charged the 33-year-old Port Hedland man with acts or omissions causing bodily harm or danger to 49-year-old Donald Van Aalen, who died in the car.
A 28-year-old Port Hedland woman was charged with the same offence yesterday.
Police allege the 33-year-old man shared heroin with Mr Van Aalen in South Hedland at about 6.30pm (WST) on July 11.
"Shortly after using the heroin, Mr Van Aalen collapsed and was resuscitated by his companions but did not regain consciousness," police spokeswoman Susan Usher said.
"He was allegedly placed into the rear of a vehicle by the woman and the other man, who'd been advised to seek medical attention for Mr Van Aalen.
"It will be further alleged the couple ignored this advice and instead drove to a Chinese restaurant where they purchased a meal, leaving Mr Van Aalen unconscious in the vehicle."
Ms Usher said the couple later drove to a nearby hotel and left Mr Van Aalen in the car while they socialised.
"When they returned to their vehicle about 9.30pm Mr Van Aalen was dead," she said.
Both are due to appear in the South Hedland Magistrates Court on Friday.
Apart from the total disregard these two showed towards the other person the thing that I find interesting in this article is the bit: "He was allegedly placed into the rear of a vehicle by the woman and the other man, who'd been advised to seek medical attention for Mr Van Aalen".
Just wondering who advised them to seek medical attention for him and why didn't that person call an ambulance themselves? Umm, odd.
