If you are at home and find someone is unconscious and not breathing or doesn’t have a pulse, call 111 for medical advice. If someone that did not appear to have any life-threatening conditions dies, it may be necessary to report the death to a coroner. A coroner is a professional that investigates sudden deaths. They will probably call for an autopsy to see the exact cause of death. Depending on how long it takes, the funeral may need to be delayed.
