The video above illustrates what happened when the transporters arrived in the middle of the night.

“Wish it never led to this, wish we didn’t have to have this … come to this kind of result. Wish we could have had a better path. I feel deeply responsible, and accountable,” says Tom. But he and Karen both agree it was the right thing to do.

“You understand this is the family dynamic,” says Dr. Phil on Monday’s episode. “Parenting has contributed to this. Her choices now are contributing to this. This is a family dynamic. But however we got here, the number one thing is – you have to save her from herself. If you are responsible, let’s say you are 100 percent guilty of making bad parental decisions that have put her in this position; it’s still your responsibility to get her off the edge of that cliff.
