Eric Bolling Speaks at Opioid Summit – Chokes Back Tears as He Describes Moment He Found Out His Son Died of Accidental Overdose (VIDEO)
Eric Bolling’s only son, 19-year-old Eric Chase Bolling died in early September of 2016 in what was reported as an accidental drug overdose.
Eric Bolling and his wife Adrienne were devastated by the news and received tons of outpouring support from the public.
The news of Bolling’s son’s death came only a day after the former Fox News host was fired from the network for alleged sexual misconduct going back several years.
On January 11th, Eric Bolling tweeted, “Accidentally taking a Xanax laced with Fentanyl killed our son. “Bad batch” they called it. Take the time to have an open and honest conversation with your kids about this prolific killer. It may save a life.”

On Thursday, Eric Bolling spoke at the Opioid Summit held at the White House.
Bolling choked back tears as he spoke about his son, Eric Chase and the moment he and his wife Adrienne received the dreaded phone call their only son had passed away.
The former Fox News host pleaded with other parents not to have “not my kid syndrome”. This could happen to anyone’s child or loved one.
“Get involved in your kid’s lives, find out who they’re talking to and who they’re hanging out with”, Bolling said.
