Terrell Owens 911 Call

Alleged Suicide Attempt

10/27/2011 10:22 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained the 911 call placed moments before Terrell Owens was rushed to an L.A. hospital for a possible pill overdose on October 6 -- and according to Terrell's assistant, T.O. was trying to kill himself.

During the call, placed at 11:02 PM, the dispatcher asks the assistant on the phone, "Was this a suicide attempt?" -- and she responds, "Yes, I believe so."

While she was on the phone with the dispatcher, the woman claims T.O. was "talking to his girlfriend, ex-girlfriend ... [I]don't really know what you wanna call it."

T.O.'s rep declined to comment.

T.O. was famously hospitalized back in 2006 for a similar incident -- when he insisted he had a bad reaction to painkillers ... despite reports he tried to commit suicide by swallowing 35 Vicodin pills.

T.O. later held a news conference on the matter and stated, "The rumor of me taking 35 pills, I think is absurd. I don't think I would be here if I had taken 35 pills."

I recommend In-patient treatment: and a host of new doctors who aren't pill machines. Well, should he be able to find any.

She called it like she saw it at the time. I think he was trying to commit suicide no matter how they try to spin it now.

Don't confuse Vicodin with Viagra. One will definitely kill you.

My question is, was his show on VH1 being filmed, I know it is being shown not and I wonder if it is ratings play. You never know what extent people will go to for fame, just look at the Lohan's.

His assistant said she "believe" it was a suicide attempt, which means she didn't know. This is a nonstory. Come back when you "know" something.

Mr. Owens is a kind, sweet man but soooo sad. He doesn't deserve the negativity.

It irks me when people with money try to kill themselves--not because I think money should make them happy, but because they have the money to get the best people to help them through the issues that are making them want to kill themselves.

This is just his way of getting attention. When the media stops talking about him, he does something. He wasn't payed attention to enough as a child.

That's really sad if he was trying to commit suicide. Stop making jokes, what has he done to any of you to think this is so comical? I swear, people get more evil by the day...that speaks volumes about you as a human being. Shameful!
