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.

She said in the interview she had someone call 911 before she reached the room because the hairstylest was screaming and hysterical. A number of medical specialist have said they don't know how these people would conclude that her heart was a part of the cause of death. They said her heart condition wasn't even something that doctors would treat or be concerned about but would watch for the next 10 or 20 years. They also said that from the information given in the coroners report they would conclude that she had a seizure and fell into the tub.

Why do you still have these bathroom photos, according to the autopsy report, these things where not found in the bathtub and there was no food tray on the floor.

I would sue that hotel for negligence. I do not understand why an investigation is not being done. If you listen to the 911 tape recently made available, the 911 dispatcher ask twice to be patched into the room so that she can give instructions over the phone to perform CPR on Whitney to the persons in the room with Whitney, and the hotel employee says "No, the lady in the room keeps hanging up the phone?!". Why in the world wouldnt the hotel employee even try to patch the emergency tech in, or even walk his own butt (or send someone else up to the room, so that the phone line could be used/clear for the tech to call in). For years, hotels have had the ability to dial a room directly, but this person just says no, because someone in the room keeps hanging up the phone,and he says it like its no big deal?! That is outrageous.

I don't care about what anyone says, her death was a murder....set up! The personal assistnat didn't call 911, and give information about Whitney Houston revealing her identity because they knew by not identifying her it would take more time for the paramedics to come. This was set up. Everyone's aliby is that they were so busy doing other things that they didn't check up on her. Her bathtub water was scortching hot, she was found faced down, no one was in a rush to call paramedics, a party was still taken place a few floors below her body, once toxicology reports come forth, they claim a "white powdery substance" was found in the bathroom....come on now! That is FOUL PLAY!!!! The problem is that the media (which is controlled by the government) doesn't give Whitney Houston the same respect that they gave Michael Jackson, so someone is running around scott free right now after taking away our beloved Whitney Houston's life, but I believe justice will be served in due time, and karma will have the final say! I Will Always Love You Whitney Houston!!! Rest In Peace.

In a way this is a good way to move on from this tragedy. I read it here first, http://thecelebritycafe.com/feature/2012/04/police-close-investigation-whitney-houstons-death, but we can move on, you know? She was so beautiful in so many ways though. I really hope that she is not struggling through her life any longer, but I wish it would have been better for her. She was such a beautiful woman.
