Kevin Samuels mother says she learned about her sons passing via social media.

According to NBC News, Beverly Samuels-Burch, declined to release details of the incident. “That was a terrible thing for social media to put that out. I didn’t even know. I hadn’t even been notified,” she said in a phone call on Friday. “All I’m doing is requesting that people pray for us.”

The Atlanta Police Department confirmed that Samuels was with a woman when he started to complain about having chest pains. The woman “came to his apartment, and spent the night with him.” He collapsed on top of her while she was attempting to help with his pain.

The report says the woman “requested the 911 operator to contact the front desk for a defibrillator to keep Mr. Samuels responsive until Grady arrived because she is a nurse.” The Atlanta police department has confirmed the identity of the man transported to Piedmont Hospital by Grady bus was Kevin Samuels.

At this time, the medical examiners office cannot confirm or deny if Mr. Samuels is deceased although many friend of Samuels is saying he passed. “The Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office is neither able to confirm or deny the passing of Kevin Samuels.”
