what a shame


TAMPA - The son of Indianapolis Colts coach Tony Dungy used a belt to hang himself from a ceiling fan, according to the 911 call the teen's girlfriend made when she found him last month. Antoinette Anderson returned to James Dungy's apartment after a 10-minute walk early Dec. 22 to find him apparently lifeless, according to tapes released Wednesday. The tape is the first public indication how James Dungy, 18, killed himself.


"I think my boyfriend's dead," an anguished Anderson told an emergency dispatcher. "I think he tried to hang himself or something."

She told the dispatcher she had used a knife to cut James Dungy down and that his roommate was asleep in another room.

"Get the roommate up," the dispatcher told Anderson. "You're gonna need some help here, OK?"

Anderson is then heard telling the roommate, whose name has not been released, "I think he's dead, like for real. And I'm on the phone with 911."

The two tell the dispatcher Dungy isn't moving. The dispatcher tells them how to perform CPR as Anderson cried.

"Force two deep breaths of air into the lungs just like you're blowing up a big balloon," the dispatcher said. "Did you do that?"

"Yes," Anderson said. "I just don't think he's alive."

"Did you feel air going in?" the dispatcher asked. Anderson replied, "No. No."

That is really disturbing. I wish I hadn't read this. I know if it was my son, I wouldn't want it released out in the papers...:(

He must have been super-depressed, but you've gotta wonder about the timing. Killing yourself 2 days before Christmas? That ruins the holiday for the Dungy family FOREVER. God Bless the Dungy's; hopefully they can move forward.

I dont see the need to report this. Id want something like this to be private to my family. Sometimes news coverage goes too far for no good reason. Theres no reason to report this or dig deep into this.

I've heard Christmas is the most common time for suicide because depressed or disturbed people are surrounded by people who are having a good time and that just makes them feel even worse. Terrible thing Dungy's family had to endure. :(
