Probably not dead, or taking

Probably not dead, or taking a nap. Probably just passed out or finishing her drink. Or it could be that a early riser just made a wrong turn, and barely escaped with her life, and was resting on the ground after freeing herself from the car and swimming to the bank. Too bad she did not have OnStar. See you can not really understand and prevent this from happening again unless you know all of the facts.
