Paul Walker

Dispatch Recording ...

'Dead on Arrival'

12/6/2013 9:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


First responders to the Paul Walker crash declared the actor dead almost immediately after arriving on the scene ... and TMZ has obtained audio of the call to dispatch.  

According to the recording ...  the first firefighters arrived less than 3 minutes after a 911 call alerted them to the crash -- and one of their first communications from the scene is "two fatalities" ... and "DOA."

The man on-scene also informs dispatch it's a "Code N" incident ... which means it's a newsworthy event that should be handled with care.

As we previously reported ... several of Paul's friends were on-scene and most likely told firefighters the actor was in the vehicle.

Listen to the audio ... it's clear firefighters had no doubt Paul and Roger Rodas died instantly.

How the **** can firefighters know if he dies instantly?

They turned up 3+ minutes after impact - by that time the car was completely engulfed in flames.

What a crock of **** and completely contradicts what the coroner has said.

conds Ago people who were filming the car were dummies . instead of trash talking they should try to help it was at least two of them plus men on the street running to the car and then he back off?????? Why ? What people are you seeing someone at the car and didn't bring any help????? I am hoping that they will regret this forever

TMZ has the coroner said exactly what traumatic injuries PW suffered AND was he wearing his tshirt at the time of death?

I dont mean to sound insensitive, I hope his family and friends are staying well away from the media during their time of mourning.

Firefighters would know that there's a point in which a fire is burning at such a temperature that it is not survivable. Once that fire got going, that's it. The people are gone. Even if the victims were technically alive, burns of that magnitude are not survivable.

I'm sure Santa Clarita FD was just as worried about this explosion sparking a brush fire as anything else. In these areas of SoCal, wildfire danger is always a major concern, especially so close to homes.

DOA when the firefighters arrived yes but that actually means f all as we have no way of knowing what time they arrived. 3 minutes from the call? When was the call? I know what time the crash happened but what time did the firefighters actually arrive?

And I liked paul walker as a actor, but if he was speeding he would be here today, I just thank god there was no other cars involed and they didnt hurt any body else in this accident... And u ppl may be mad, at me for saying this but he didnt have 2 die he and roger they didnt to themselves...

Why is Paul Walker who past Nov,30,2013 still listed at the top of this site, when Nelson Mandela is listed at the very bottom! Fix this! The man fought for freedom, his funeral will be attended by heads of state , royalty and relgious leaders.

Stop it! Just stop it! You've gone way beyond reporting the news on this one. You have not shown one bit of respect for the families.
