"Time is of the essence, there should be no delay before they get expertise, expert help in dealing with a poisoning. Time is a critical factor."
(((NAT SND))) "Hi, Poison Control Center, how can I help you?"
LOCAL OFFICES WILL STILL RECEIVE THE CALLS, BECAUSE NATIONWIDE, POISON CONTROL CENTERS RECEIVE AN EMERGENCY CALL EVERY 14 SECONDS. NEARLY 90 PERCENT OF ALL POISONINGS HAPPEN AT HOME, AND INVOLVE ONLY ONE TOXIC SUBSTANCE, SO CALLING THE CENTER'S EXPERTS OFTEN MEANS AVOIDING AN EXPENSIVE TRIP TO THE EMERGENCY ROOM.


(((SOT---Soloway)))

"More than 75 percent of poison exposures can be treated entirely over the phone with the help of poison control experts, but don't guess, don't take a chance."

It really hit me...her condition was pretty severe, that she may not make it.
TX Even though little Vicky Lyons was in a coma and near death, her Mom Crystal had the presence of mind to photograph the only visible clue.

SOT CRYSTAL

Those are tire marks on her face.
TX Armed with photos of the tire track, Crystal launched a one woman investigation. She made a list of nine cars in the parking lot that day. Then rubbed black shoe polish on each tire and transferred the impression to paper. Crystal contacted one of the top forensic tire experts in the world.

It's amazing she had the foresight to make rubbings of the suspect tires.
TX Peter Mc Donald was able to trace the tread marks to a car of a fellow employee at the newspaper. A man who didn't confess but expressed "sorrow" about the accident which left Vicky disabled even years later.
