Doug Stansell Wiki – Doug Stansell Biography

A “big-hearted” man lost his life after trying to save a teenager who was left to die on the road. Doug Stansell breathed his last on Monday, November 14 at Mercy Health – Anderson Hospital hours after suffering a heart attack. The 56-year-old man has been said to have gone into cardiac arrest due to the “stress and trauma” he faced after finding 15-year-old Eli Jones unconscious in the 8000 block of Clough Pike.

Doug was reportedly going to pick up his daughters from work with his two adult sons around 1 a.m. m. when they saw something on the road. Initially, they thought it was a trash can, but they soon realized it was a person. They informed the police immediately and also cooperated with them when they arrived. Doug’s son, Jonathan, told Fox19 that when officers and first responders arrived, his father was fine.

Even when the trio went looking for the family’s daughters, Doug was normal. “I guess once he parked, he let it all sink in. I don’t know if it was too much for him. He was talking to me and then he went quiet and passed out and turned his head towards me. He couldn’t speak or breathe,” Jonathan said. The man received chest compressions before being taken to hospital, but they were unable to save him.

In a GoFundMe started by Jonathan, he says: “Dad was going to Taco Bell when he bumped into something on the way. I realized that the object in the way was a body. Dad, Chris and I were on the scene for 45 minutes writing statements. One time we were sitting inside the Taco Bell parking lot, Dad was sitting in the Jeep Wrangler where he passed out and was unresponsive.”

“Chris called 911 while he was doing CPR on dad,” he continued. “He was going in and out, but he couldn’t get back by air. Chris and I got Dad out of the Jeep and laid him on the ground where I continued CPR until the team showed up. Dad was omitted [sic] at 2am with respiratory shock that put dad into cardiac arrest.”

Doug died at 12:30 p.m., with his family around him. “Dad’s wife Christina Stansell will be turning this page into a memorial service page,” Jonathan’s message added. “If you have any memories you’d like to share with everyone about Doug, please feel free to post the memories on his page or in the comments below. Dad was loved by so many people and always tried to brighten someone’s day.”

Meanwhile, it was reported that the Stansell family’s efforts to save Eli were in vain as he, too, was pronounced dead on Monday. The Anderson High School sophomore was reportedly fatally struck by a vehicle, believed to be a Honda Civic.
