Any one watch all of Anderson Cooper 360 (CNN) today?

Hey-has anyone watched Anderson Cooper 360 on CNN today? I had it on in the background while logging on to work (and surf), with my coffee when I woke woke up.

I caught the end piece regarding some type of an uproar regarding 911 response not being able to locate 2 folks who had called in. The part that I did overhear, noted that at autopsey the 2 folks had died of a methamphetamine overdose (and were in there car). The family was upset that they couldn't be located (the victems didn't know where they were when they called).

Did I miss something? Shouldn't the story have been about the badness of illegal dangerous street drugs? If the family was so upset, wouldn't they have noticed a drug problem, intervened before it became a tragedy? Or was this the first time these folks decided to do drugs, go driving, and happened to overdose?

-Did I completely miss an important part of the story? Perhaps these folks got car jacked by drugged out people (yeah that would be a tragedy).

Thanks

If you were referring to the story where a couple high off something, got lost in a winter storm and subsequently froze to death - the people who gave them said drugs have been jailed I believe.

Unless you're talking about a different news story.

This was apparently a general piece regarding 911 systems not being able to locate callers using cell phones/web phones.
