A new book is out about the life and death of River Phoenix
. After interviewing lots of people about the night of his death the author suggests that River would still be alive today if Joaquin Phoenix and River's friends had been less concerned about being busted by the police and more concerned about saving River's life. The author says that if paramedics had been called right away River would have lived. Instead, Joaquin brought River outside the club and insisted everything was fine and that no one should do anything. It was only after River had a seizure that anyone bothered to call 911 and by then it was too late.
