Whitney Houston

The 911 Call

'Apparently She's Not Breathing'

4/11/2012 12:35 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained the 911 call placed moments after Whitney Houston's body was discovered in a bathtub at the Beverly Hilton hotel on February 11.

The caller -- who IDs himself as a member of the Beverly Hilton security team -- informs the 911 operator about a "46-year-old female found in the bathroom."

He adds, "I'm not sure if she fell or if she was in the bathroom with the water."

The caller says he was alerted to the situation by an "irate" woman who called security from the room ... but he couldn't get much info from her because she kept hanging up.

The security member -- who never identifies Whitney by name -- tells the operator he was under the impression the 46-year-old woman was not breathing.

The 911 operator says emergency personnel would be dispatched to the hotel ASAP ... but it was too late.

As we previously reported, Whitney's official cause of death is listed as "accidental drowning" -- but heart disease and cocaine use were contributing factors. According to the final autopsy report, Whitney may have overdosed.

According to the L.A. County Coroner, Whitney's chronic use of the drug caused a narrowing of her arteries, which resulted in a cardiac event before her death.

Why does this even matter? There is nothing to investigate, everyone already knows how she died. Why keep digging up stuff? Let her rest in peace already. Let her family rest, they may be celebrities but they are still humans with feelings. Do you not have any regard for other people's feelings? They deal with a lost like the test of us do...

What is it with the celebrity entourage calling hotel security instead of 911 themselves? Same thing happened with Anna Nicole Smith. Do they not realize that 911 still has to be called, and the hotel security people are not paramedics?

I wonder why the person kept hanging up on security? What could have been more important than getting Whitney help…..oh that's right.
