Whitney Houston

The 911 Call

'Apparently She's Not Breathing'

EXCLUSIVE

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.

Tmz...still beating a dead horse. There was never any 'foul play' never was. Whitney Houston was wasted right up until she was found dead. Family of course want's to suger coat it differently. Only they can't.

It doesn't change anything but again makes you question the family/friend who was with her.. who 'stepped out' for just a few minutes. My issue is how the family keeps pointing fingers and placing blame and here it seems as though the one person who might have had the chance to get real help, was instead calling hotel security? What the hell is that? Waste time with a middle person who then has to call 911 for you?

Now media sites are just recycling information or adding trivial details that do not matter. She died from accidental drowning after a possible overdose combined with having a bad heart, also caused by drug use. Ok OK OK we get it. This is no longer interesting. A great singer who set a standard for other singers has died. OK!

some of the previous comments are ringing true..."apparently she's not breathing"...come on, the report stated that she was found face down, so unless she had gills or a hook in that crack warped mouth of hers of freaking course she was not apparently breathing. So lets close the casket lid on this and call it done and done...and one last thing...and I quote "nippy dead"...good night and good luck...and one more thing BK will suffer a similiar fate...the crack pipe does not roll far from the rock...

We plainly see an overturned ash ray and butts in oneof hese photos of her hotel room. Why is her narrowing of the arteries attributed to smoking, after all how many times have we heard them attributed to cocaine use? Usually heart trouble caused by cocaine use results from damage to the heat muscle due to over-firing of the nerves used to control its movements. It doesn't sound correct to me.
