RULE 805. HEARSAY WITHIN HEARSAY
Hearsay included within hearsay is not excluded under the hearsay rule if each part of the combined statements conforms with an exception to the hearsay rule provided in these rules.
Rule 805 provides that double or multiple hearsay statements are not to be excluded if each step is admissible under a hearsay exception. Thus, a dying declaration containing another declarant's statement of his present sense impression would be admissible.
