    The lawyer representing the victim's family says India Cummings had "a broken arm, broken ribs, severe dehydration, a blood clot in her leg that would have required the amputation of her leg, and her kidneys were failing. She was brain dead and in cardiac arrest."

    Her mother deserves some answers. It sure sounds like a 'death in custody' to me. That poor mother.

    More info in this article:

    Some excerpts:

    The lawyer said he sent a letter to Sheriff Timothy B. Howard insisting that he preserve relevant evidence, such as any surveillance camera footage that recorded Cummings’ final days, including the moments when she is said to have banged her head against a wall.

    Cummings, described as a typically calm person, was arrested 26 days ago after a series of rash acts brought on, in part, her family said, by the synthetic marijuana known as K2. It can trigger hallucinations, agitation and violent behavior.

    “She was freaked, screaming, ‘Help me, help me,’ ” Pintabona said, describing her outbursts as totally out of character. “She was anxious and panicked.”


    She also was moving in fits and starts. In one moment, she prayed with a neighbor. In the next, she hijacked a car.

    She punched the driver and dragged him out of his Ford Taurus, according to Lackawanna police. She then led officers on a chase that ended after her car struck three vehicles and a school bus.

    she argued with the medical staff and was denied treatment. Then she punched a jail deputy returning her to her cell. The female deputy keeled over with a concussion as several deputies were called to subdue her.

    Less is known about Cummings’ confinement over the next two weeks. Jail protocols suggest she could have been placed in a unit for mentally ill or emotionally disturbed inmates. Sheriff’s officials won’t say where she was housed.

    At the hospital, family members learned that Cummings had blood clots that threatened the viability of one of her legs, and ribs that had been broken, perhaps by efforts to revive her using CPR.

    I always wondered why somebody doesn't do something about that. Then I realized I was somebody.

    I don't think it's clear yet exactly when or how she received her injuries, or even exactly what injuries she had. All of the info vis-a-vis her injuries seems to be coming from her family's lawyer.

    What the hell? It sounds like she should have been in a mental health facility! Her poor family.
