Brittany Murphy’s final moments alive were witnessed by her neighbor, who saw paramedics desperately trying to save her life.

Clare Staples told RadarOnline.com: “I saw five firemen bringing down the gurney and take her down to the firetruck, trying to resuscitate her by the fire truck. She had tubes down her throat…I think she was dead already.”

Staples said Murphy’s husband Simon Monjack was “wandering around in his pajama bottoms with no shoes on. He wasn’t even near the gurney, he was just staggering around.”
