On the very day that President Trump held a news conference about the opioid epidemic, calling it the “worst drug crisis in American history,” former Fox News host Eric Bolling learned that his own son’s death was attributed to the very same, tragic problem.

Bolling’s son, Eric Chase Bolling, 19, was found dead Friday evening, Sep. 8, in his apartment in Boulder, Colorado, where he was attending college.

The following morning, Bolling announced the death of his only child in a heartbreaking Twitter post, stating, “Adrienne and I are devastated by the loss of our beloved son Eric Chase last night. Details still unclear. Thoughts, prayers appreciated.”

On Thursday, Oct. 26, Bolling sent out another two-part Twitter message, stating, “Just received some tragic news from Coroner in Colorado. Eric Chase’s passing has been ruled an accidental overdose that included opioids. Adrienne and I thank you for your continued prayers and support. We must fight against this national epidemic, too many innocent victims.”

Also on Thursday, President Trump said that his administration is declaring the opioid crisis a public health emergency under federal law.

“Last year, we lost at least 64,000 Americans to drug overdoses,” President Trump announced. “That’s 175 lost lives per day, and 7 lost lives per hour.”

Eric Chase’s official cause of death was a mixed-drug intoxication, including opioids and Fentanyl, according to the Boulder County Coroner, The Washington Post reported.

The teen’s death came just hours after Bolling was fired from Fox News.
