Collingwood taser death inquest

A coroner's jury has ruled that a Taser was not directly reponsible for the death of a 27-year-old Collingwood man.
Aron Firman who had schizophrenia died after the conductive energy device was used on him by an OPP officer in front of his group home in June of 2010.
The jury determined that Firman died of cardiac arrhythmia brought on by "excited delirium," a condition sometimes cited in deaths caused by drug overdoses.
Guest host Mike Ewing talked to Marcus Firman. He is Aron's father.
