The 911 call made when Gary Coleman fell last week at his home in Utah is not for the faint of heart. Be forewarned: It is graphic, upsetting material.
Well, unless you’re his wife, Shannon Price. Woman didn’t seem too moved by the whole situation – at least not enough to drive Coleman to the hospital.
“I don’t know what happened,” Price told the dispatcher, requesting that they “send someone quick because I don’t know if he’s going to, like, be alive.”
Gary was conscious during the call, but Shannon says he’s “like, not with it.” Price then added that “I’m gagging. I’ve got blood on myself. I can’t deal.”
On the call, Shannon initially refused to walk over and assess Gary’s condition because she was stressed and she doesn’t “want to be traumatized.”
Imagine how Gary felt …
She also told him numerous times to put pressure on a cut on the back of his head and to “Sit down!” as if he were some sort of animal. It’s really sad.
We realize Shannon Price suffers from seizures and was in the throes of trauma, but she certainly doesn’t come off very sympathetic here … or useful.
The 911 call was placed Wednesday, before the actor was hospitalized. Gary Coleman died Friday morning when Shannon removed him from life support.
Might his brain hemorrhage have been prevented or treated more effectively after a swifter response? Might she have waited longer to see if he recovered?
There’s no way to know. But it makes you wonder. Just saying.
