The 911 call placed from Demi Lovato’s home the morning she was found unconscious has been released to the public. You can listen to it above. The recording is notable for a couple reasons.
First, it is now believed that an assistant is the person who discovered Lovato in the singer’s own bed, having entered her room around 11 a.m. became she was concerned over why Lovato has not yet awoken for the day.Upon seeing Lovato’s state, the assistant called for medical help.
Second, this unnamed caller seems especially interested in keeping Demi’s situation private.
You can hear the woman ask the dispatcher to NOT have the ambulance use its sirens on the way to Lovato’s home, presumably to divert attention from the tragedy unfolding there.
“This is a medical emergency,” the operator says in response to this request, adding “I don’t have control over that. Sorry about that. thought you were just saying we have to wave you guys down,” the assistant replies.“Definitely wave us down. That’s going to be helpful. This is definitely a medical emergency Opens a New Window. for her. We need to get there as fast as possible,” the dispatcher says again.
Lovato spent the night before she was found going out with friends, drinking and seemingly doing a lot of drugs. Details concerning the party she hosted at her home, following this evening out, have been reported by a multitude of outlets.
During the four-minute call shared above, the dispatcher gives orders to the individual on the other end of the line, who remains calm.
The dispatcher tells this person to “wave” the paramedics down and to put any pets “in a room” after dogs were heard barking in the background.
The call concludes when the EMTs arrive and are with the caller.
Elsewhere, we’ve heard that Lovato may soon leave the hospital and head to rehab, somewhere far away from Los Angeles.
“Nurses have been giving her fluids nonstop to flush her system and her family wants to make her exit as quick and quiet as possible,” an insider tells Fox News, while a rep for the artist has added: “Some of the information being reported is incorrect and they respectfully ask for privacy and not speculation as her health and recovery is the most important thing right now.”
We simply wish Demi the best. We hope she recovers well from this overdose and finds a way to turn her life around again.
