Kenneth Chamberlain Sr. (Frankie Faison) turns over in his sleep and accidentally triggers his LifeAid pendant, which he wears because of a heart condition. Responding to this, three police officers show up to his apartment around 5:20 a.m. on November 19, 2011, for a welfare check, eventually leading to Kenneth’s tragic death.
