          Why A Woman Claims Her Sister’s Medical Emergency ‘Was Completely Self-Inflicted’


          May 12, 2017

          Abby and Josh claim their baby sister, Bethany, is addicted to heroin – and it’s killing her. They say the former high school soccer star recently had emergency open-heart surgery to replace a leaky valve, and another operation to have a pacemaker put in due to complications from her drug use.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Life in crisis?

          “She was extremely sick. She was knocking on death’s door 100 percent,” says Josh. He claims – that despite having bi-lateral pneumonia – his little sister refused to be admitted the night their parents brought her to the E.R. because “she wanted to get high.”

          Josh says it was a drug dealer who brought Bethany back to the hospital where she was admitted to the ICU and was eventually put into a medically-induced coma.

          “The worst part of this whole thing is that this was completely self-inflicted because of her drug habit,” says Abby.

          Why do Bethany’s siblings say it might have been better if their sister had died? Tune in to Friday’s Dr. Phil.
