Amy Winehouse -- Signs of Life When Help Arrived

7/23/2011 4:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sources connected with the Amy Winehouse death investigation tell TMZ ... paramedics found "signs of life" when they arrived Saturday afternoon, but she died before they could transport her.

0722_amy_EX4Our sources were not specific as to the exact nature of the "signs of life."

According to our sources, law enforcement "is operating under the suspicion" this an overdose, although police will not say on the record it's an overdose until the first postmortem exam Sunday morning.

As TMZ first reported, police on the scene determined there were no signs of foul play and there is nothing suspicious about the death.

Yes, we saw it coming - I commented on TMZ's coverage last month of her literally self-decimating on stage with "Where is the help for this woman?". Now it's happened, and there will be plenty of people saying that you can't help someone who doesn't want to be helped, etc. etc., but this shouldn't be the argument. I lost both my brother and my father to drug abuse, and I can die tomorrow knowing that, even if they didn't want the help, and I couldn't save them, I did everything I could do, and we're going to talk about the situation somewhere down the road. Drug addicts should not be ridiculed, and I am sorry to see the kind of posts already cropping up. Amy was talented and troubled, and this all goes back to the original thought: Where was this woman's help? Even if she turned it down, I have seen nothing in the media that shows she had any support - they just kept pushing her out onstage. RIP, Child.

I find it disturbing how some people are treating this tragedy.
For instance a post that went viral on Google Plus from Robert Scoble, he was more or bothered by the news of Amy's disrupting his stream than the actual fact she is a human being and well thought of by many.
He could have cared less. Hell he was ranting back and forth for hours trying to justify why his comment was useful.

Condolences to Amy's family and friends. It is truly sad to another young person die so senselessly. She couldn't beat her addiction. How sad to see people making such disparaging comments during a such horrible tragedy.

If there were signs of life, then maybe the paramedics or whatever they have in London fracked up in treating her? Maybe they should be investigated for incompetence causing or contributing to her death? You think someone will take responsiblity for contributing to her death? Never. The "self-preservation" reflex kicks in. Do they have paramedics in London or only ambulance body transporters? Does anyone know?

Jus*****ched an idiot cop on "Cops" ask a girl in a baby-seat in the back of a car, a baby about 9 months old and who's obviously too young to be able to talk, if she's ok. What a moron cop! When's the last time a 9-month old answered any of your questions, you moronic cop?

Too many dumbasses in this world. That's why NASA is looking for planets with smarter life-forms. LOL
