I park in the Hollywood Beach parking lot and immediately witness what looks like a man dying. He is on his knees on the sidewalk, his body and head flopped forward. His three companions try to rouse him awake but it doesn't work. Bystanders notice. One rushes to him and feels for a pulse. I'm watching all of this through my rearview mirror, frozen. I call 911 and answer their questions. When I tell them his companions are sort of pushing on his chest the operator tells me someone else is on with 911 receiving CPR instructions and I see the bystander is holding a phone. We hang up and the parking lot fills with police cars, ambulances, and a fire engine. After a few minutes the man is conscious. I can't see what happened. He is able to get himself onto the stretcher and they're gone as fast as they came. A woman walks by me in the parking lot after it's over and says, "They should do here what they do in Amsterdam, give them a place to shoot up."
