Docs Tried to Revive Daniel for 23 Minutes

9/14/2006 7:43 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Anna Nicole Smith and Daniel SmithOn the heels of Anna Nicole Smith's statement, the Royal Bahamas Police Force has issued their own press release regarding the death of Anna Nicole's son Daniel.

Assistant Commissioner With Responsibility For Crime, Reginald Ferguson, said police received a call from the hospital informing them of Daniel's death on Sunday morning at around 10:29AM.

Officers were sent to the hospital where they discovered Daniel's "lifeless body" lying on his back on a bed. Crime scene investigators concluded there was "nothing unusual noticed about the condition of the room."

Police inquiries indicate that Daniel was last seen moving about the room at 6:30AM and at 7:30AM Daniel, Anna Nicole and Howard K. Stern were "observed to be asleep in the room."

Nurses responded to a call from Anna Nicole's room at 9:38AM (as Anna had said in her statement) and issued a Code Blue. Doctors and other medical staff then attempted to resuscitate Daniel for "approximately 23 minutes." Daniel Smith was pronounced dead at 10:05 am.

A few hours later Daniel was transported to the morgue and on Tuesday an autopsy was performed. With the results of the toxicology analysis still pending, police say the cause of death is still not known. This is of note because, as we first reported yesterday, the coroner confirmed to TMZ that she does, in fact, know what killed Daniel. A death certificate has not been issued.

The statement adds that local police are continuing with further investigations.

Out of force of habit, after the death, Anna said, "Quick! Go through his wallet!"

I find it very strange that her dumbass hanger on attorney Howard K Stern has remained silent through all this. He may have something to do with this wouldn't be shocked

Interesting how Anna tried to revive her kid 23 minutes after death but wouldn't do the same when it happened to her 90-year-old boyfriends.

Can't help feeling terribly sad for her...her son was a real anchor in her life. You can see how precious he was to her in the pics they took together and their interaction on that lame reality show of hers. I wonder how she will survive it all.

If Anna Nicole read this, I am begging her, Please, Please, do not turn Daniel's death into the spectacle you did when Pierce Marshall died. Please do not wear your wedding dress, or anything goofy like maybe what you had on in the hospital when your son passed.

Remember, Daniel for all the good he did, for putting up with you all those years and still loving you. Love him back the way he deserves to be loved. Not some circus like atmosphere. Do not turn his wake into something it should not be. Give him the dignity and respect you failed to give him when he was alive.

The only good that came out of this is that Daniel is now with his maker. He is finally at peace and he is eternally be happy.
