Transcript of 911 Call Seeking Help for Prince Shows He Was Unconscious in Elevator
The caller told the emergency dispatcher, "we're at Prince's house."
— -- Police have released the transcripts from the 911 call made when Prince's body was found in an elevator in his estate in Minnesota.
The call was made at 9:43 a.m. Thursday by an unidentified male, according to the transcript, provided by the Carver County Sheriff's Office.
At first, the male caller could not provide their location, simply replying "we're at Prince's house" when the CCSP dispatcher asked for the address.
The caller described the person as "dead" and said the people around were "distraught" as the dispatcher pleaded for him to find the address.
When asked how the person in question died, the caller said he didn't know. After telling the dispatcher they were at Paisley Park, he confirmed the person was Prince.
"Yes, it's Prince," he said.
The dispatcher then called for an ambulance to head over to Paisley Park Studios at 7801 Audubon Road. She described prince as "down" and "not breathing."
Later on, an ambulance dispatcher cancelled all emergency services heading to Paisley Park, describing the situation as a "confirmed DOA."
Prince's was pronounced dead at 10:07 a.m. His publicist later confirmed to the public that the music icon had died at his home.
In Minnesota, the audio of a 911 call is considered private data and not eligible for public release. However, transcripts of the 911 call are public data, police said.
