The deceased's father, Richard, said that the number of viewers kept growing after she collapsed but nobody called the Police or called to check on her to see if she was alright.
He added that it took thirty minutes after she fell before one of her friends went to her house to see if she was okay. The video ended when the friend got to her house and called 911.
Her mother, Mary Morgan, who expressed that she wants her baby to come back explained that Herndon had thyroid problems.
“She had thyroid problems. The thyroid messes with everything and it triggered her heart. It’s a tragedy, I know that much, and I know one thing, I would love to have my baby back with me.”
May her soul rest in perfect peace!
