Breakthrough Premiere Interview with DeVon Franklin and Roxann Dawson
Imagine receiving a phone call that thrusts your heart from your chest into your throat. You sprint to your car and rush to the hospital, where you see your loved one laying in a bed – cold, without a pulse and no sign of life. What will you do next?
Joyce Smith had to answer this question in 2015, after her then 14-year-old son John Smith fell through the ice of Lake St. Louis while playing with his friends.
