•Was a call made for medical assistance, such as for an EMT, or an ambulance?

•Were attempts to revive Lockett, such as CPR, etc., made by any medical or DOC staff in the execution chamber?

•Director Patton was told there was not enough drugs to proceed after the curtains were closed. Does that mean there were only enough remaining drugs for Wanrer’s execution, and if so, why weren’t they used and Warner’s execution stayed?
