Why is our society so sick that we have to hear people's calls for help? This poor woman was dying! And do you think her son wants the whole world to hear the call for his mother's life? I know he is a public figure, but for once, can we give some privacy? This is just how sick our world has become. Everyone should be ashamed of this.

The caller does not appear to be listening to the 911 operator, it is vital when they are not breathing to start CPR as soon as possible. I don't know whether this call should have been made public though, it's just that we don't want celebrities being afraid of calling 911, or having second thoughts.

I've never posted a comment on TMZ before. I love TMZ! However, the Donda West 911 audio is the worst thing I've ever seen on this site. I won't listen to it and I hope that you remove it. Completely disrespectful!

What the Hell?!?! Weird 911 call.. Why couldnt they put the woman on the ground? Those women didnt know what they were doing.. Why is everybody trippin about this?? This 911 tape is just about on every news website. They do it for everybody that died in a suspicious fashion. whether they are a star or not. TMZ not included of course, they only care about people that make money.

Not only should it remain posted, it should be required listening for anyone who frequents this site.
If you want to worship celebrities, if you insist on knowing, and criticizing, their every move, then, here you go, revel in it, you idiotic vultures.
Take down this post? Let the family grieve? Hypocrites.

It's not always vital to do CPR when a person isn't breathing. If they've only choked on something, and you do CPR, you could make matters worse. FIRST, you clear the airway, without pushing. Those women could have made it worse by pushing stuff back into her throat, and her chest not moving may not have been the result of incompetence, Dr. West may have had something blocking her airway, but I still think they were too panicked. If I was that dispatcher I may have told them to stop, and go outside and yell for someone who knows CPR.

EVERYONE should take a CPR class. Taking a CPR class will not only teach you CPR, but it will teach you when to do CPR.

This is off this particular topic, but I think people with children should be reqiured by law to know CPR.

As for this tape being posted, I think we can all learn lessons from it, but I don't think those lessons should be taught at the expense of the West family and friends. Please remove this, TMZ.

This 911 should be held responsible for his idiocy. How many times must this woman say that she is not breathing? WTF does he NOT understand about the words "She is NOT breathing". And if she is not breathing, then how is she supposed to get onthe phone? And what makes her being in a bed or a hospital bed relevant? And WHY is he talking down to this person who is clearly in a very distressed moment. He is of no help to her!

ummmmmmmm, no    

There is no way in hell I can listen to this. Not surprised that it's posted though, sadly...

A lot of the people who post here should really learn how to spell because when you don't spell correctly, you come across as a moron.
