I saw a YouTube video which I think is from the U.S. Death by Misadventure DVD. He was supposed to meet Bruce at a restaurant. He said: "That day, I was there waiting for him. I wait up to 6.30 or something and I call up his house. Somebody told me he's not home and something happened. So I went to his house after I hang up the phone then I know."Just following this converation and was hoping you could enlighten us on your comment of Raymond did tell Betty to call the ambulance.
The topic of "when" was the main concern. The story that has been told for the last forty four years is that an ambulance was called for sure (records).
The issue I have is the "when" and "why" the (ambulance) was NOT called when Betty first tried to wake Bruce.
Here is what we know from that night.
1) Betty and Bruce were to dine with Raymond and Lazenby but did not show up (pre determined time).
2) A call is placed to Betty asking where they were, is was at this time that Betty say's she cannot wake Bruce
3) Raymond makes his way to Betty's flat
4) Raymond cannot wake Bruce either, calls a doctor (his or hers not sure)
5) Doctor makes his way to Betty's flat, cannot wake Bruce....
6) At this point based on everything that was documented that night, the ambulance was called to Betty's flat
7) Would be great to know the "timeline" between Betty first trying to wake Bruce and ambulance finally being called.
I cannot recall one time in my entire life (53) that I could not awaken someone from sleeping (and if I had an issue trying to wake someone, after a few mintues I would be calling medical help, that is a fact for anyone I know). With that said, the chain of events outlined above stands to reason Bruce may have been deceased even before Raymond called to see where they were for dinner.
I think we may read into this history, they wanted to get thier story straight and all be on the same page before the ambulance came.
I feel what they should have been held accountable for is:
1) Betty knew what time they were expected for dinner (I assume she did), why then did it take a call from either George or Raymond after not showing up to understand that Bruce was having a medical issue. Betty said she cannot wake him (so she tried to wake Bruce to go to dinner, she could not, what did she do then just chill out and wait for Raymonds call, unreal)
2) Raymond knew from the collopase in May that finding Bruce (quickly) and getting him to the nearest hospital that saved him. Why then would he not (stand on the side of caution) tell her to call the ambulance while on the phone with Betty and get him medical help.
What ever their reasons were unfortunatley meant Bruce Lee never had a fighting chance to survive that night, thanks to his great friends Betty & Raymond (what a way to go).
So based on Raymond and Betty statements we know the ambulance was called was at the "End" and it was way way to late.
When asked by the interviewer who was there, Charles said: "A few of his, I think, students, his son."
When asked about Brandon, Charles recalled: "I said "Where's papa?" He says "Daddy go movie. Daddy go movie." He didn't speak well then."
When asked about the other guys, Charles said: "Well, they were so sad. They don't want to tell anything. One of his students says "I don't think that he will come back." They already notice, that was the time they already notice Bruce is gone. He's dead. Those four students - I don't know them very well. I ask them "Where's the hospital?" They won't tell me. They seem so secretive, so I went home and I wait for some information."
Since those men seemed so sad, maybe they were his closest stuntmen - Lam Ching-Ying, Peter Chan Lung, Billy Chan Wui-Ngui and Yuen Wah.
