Transcript for 911 call released after Luke Perry's stroke
dramatic 911 call from Luke Perry's house after the actor suffered that massive stroke. The caller, you can hear her begging for help to come as quickly as possible and ABC's gio Benitez is here with all of the details. Gio. Good morning. Reporter: Hey, Paula. Good morning, the woman has not been identified but tells 911 she just got home and paramedics need to hurry up. This as we learn the actor may have been unconscious by the time he got to the hospital. Step on the gas, please. Reporter: You're listening to the desperate 911 call made after Luke Perry suffered a massive and ultimately deadly stroke. Is he injured? Did he hurt himself? Did he fall? Is he able to speak with you? Is he breathing normally. Reporter: Unclear who was calling and whether the arc was already unconscious at this point or when the ambulance we're learning that it took nine minutes and seconds to transport the 52-year-old from his home in Sherman oak, California, to a local hospital. Have him stay where he's at and have him stay there until they arrive. They're on their way. Okay, okay. If he should get any worse call us back for further instructions when a stroke occurs every second counts. When blood flow is disrupted brain cells start to die. Perry best known for his role as a hearttloob on "90210" passed away nine days later. Things were so dire they put him under heavy sedation. He was gone basically by the time he got to the hospital. His family now coming together as they make funeral arrangements. His daughter writing on Instagram Monday, it's the worst thing to ever happen in my life. His son writing this touching post, my heart is broken thinking about everything you won't be here for. I'll do whatever I can to carry on your legacy and make you Yeah, dad, what's taking so I can't believe we're here. Reporter: Currently starring in "Riverdale." His on screen family remembering him too. He was one of those guys that would rather have us all laughing about his great stories than mourning for too long. Reporter: So many stories like that. We should tell you that 911 call you heard was heavily redacted by police before it was released to the public. Now, we're told Perry was immediately sedated in hopes his brain would recover but as we now know that did not happen. He never regained consciousness. Still so hard to believe that he is gone. It really is. Thanks, gio.
