Whitney Houston 911 Call: Released, Tragic

by at . Comments

The 911 call placed moments after Whitney Houston's body was found in a bathtub at the Beverly Hilton hotel on February 11 has just been released.

A member of the hotel security team is the person who made the call, informing the 911 operator about a "46-year-old female found in the bathroom."

The caller says he was alerted to the situation by an "irate" woman who called security from the room, but couldn't get much information from her.

A woman who first dialed security kept hanging up for whatever reason, preventing the dispatcher from giving potentially life-saving instructions faster.

Listen to the Whitney Houston 911 call below:

"I'm not sure if she fell or if she was in the bathroom with the water," the hotel security employee says of Whitney Houston, who he never identifies by name.

The security team member was under the impression she was not breathing, and the 911 dispatcher sent emergency personnel there immediately.

Too late, as it turned out, as the star couldn't be revived. Whitney's official cause of death is listed as "accidental drowning," with foul play ruled out.

Heart disease and cocaine use were contributing factors, according to Houston's autopsy report, and the legendary singer may well have overdosed.

The L.A. County Coroner said Whitney's chronic use of drugs caused a narrowing of her arteries, which resulted in a cardiac event before her death.

Does anybody know HOW this guy knew that she was a 46 year old if he didn't yet know that it was Whitney Houston? I understand that it was an "irate" woman who told him about the 46 year old female in the bathtub, but why say "A 46 year old female isn't breathing in the bathtub" instead of "Whitney Houston isn't breathing in the bathtub"?

In the very first remarks from the coroner/police it was stated that Whitney Houston was found in the bathtub, with her FEET up in the air. And that she DIDN'T DROWN. Now, they are saying she was found FACE DOWN in the tub, and accidenta drowning.Since there was a autopsy, what KIND of heart disease did she have, and to say that cocaine USE was contributing factors. Boy, that is a REAL THOROUGH buy VERY LAME diagnosis, and that REDICULOUS conclusion took almost 2 months to THEORIZE. It seems that our LAW enforcement and our PROFESSIONALS in the medical field sure KNOW HOW TO make what sounds like a FANTASY/FICTION diagnosis. THEY REALLY DON'T KNOW is the bottom line.

i think it was murder. they said she was face down in the tub then they said she was moved an she was hung over the tub. thats fishy to me. she was suppost to be watched at all times cuz of her heart issues so why was she not watched? sounds like a cover up

Stop. Releasing. People's. 911. Calls. For. No. Reason. It's none of your business and none of your concern. Obviously the 911 call is tragic. Someone died.
But the subject of the call was nobody you know or will ever know and the same is said about the caller. You have no right to publish this. It's extraordinarily disrespectful to her family and friends, those who actually KNOW her and are trying to grieve the loss of a woman who was in their hearts. I refuse to listen. It's pretty awesome that people are so into the content of your website and of this article in particular that they come on here to ask questions about chemistry and valence electrons. That should send you a message loud and clear that nobody cares about what you're talking about.
