Eric Bolling Opens Up About Son’s Opioid Overdose
Bolling’s son, he said, was a “normal kid.” He loved baseball, he loved his car, and he had an active social life.
Bolling and his wife were at dinner one night and were driving home when his phone rang and they learned some awful news. It was his son’s sophomore year at college, and he had died of an opioid overdose.
His wife, Bolling said, “fell into the road,” before he gathered her and they both sat on the curb crying and talking for an hour.
“We never saw it coming,” he explained, holding back tears. “Every parent doesn’t want it, but we got it.”
For weeks he obsessed over what went wrong, until he eventually shared his grief on Twitter. Afterward, he said he was “overwhelmed” by the stories of people who had been affected by opioids.
“It helps to talk about it and to find resources,” Bolling shared.
