"A Life Apart: The Toll of Obesity"
Hector Garcia Jr.'s body is removed from his home Dec. 8, 2014 by contractors with the Bexar County Medical Examiner's office. Hector had walked 40 feet from his room to answer the front door when his mother arrived home without her key. "Mom, I can't breathe, Mom, I can't breathe," Hector's mother Elena described him saying before he collapsed in her recliner. "Just that walk from the bedroom door, that's all it took. And he just couldn't catch his breath," she said.
