Authorities Tuesday released the frantic 911 call made by Judy Haim after she discovered her son Corey collapsed on March 10th at his apartment in Los Angeles. The call itself is so agonizing, so disturbing that has chosen not to post the actual audio, but instead, will detail, in text, the contents.

As Judy begins talking with the 911 operator, she cries out, “Oh, my God, I think my son is dead.”

She cries out, “What’s going on?”

The operator asks her to stay calm, to which, she replies, “I can’t stay calm. I don’t know what’s going on.”

She continues by telling the operator, “Listen, he’s not breathing… He’s 38-years-old… He had a fever this morning, and a cold.”

Judy goes on to beg her son, “Core – Core – please get up. What’s going on?”

She tells the operator, “He’s in bed”… “He’s in bed.”   In anguish, she says again, “I don’t know what’s going on.”

The operator tells Judy to get Corey to the ground, and to place him flat on his back.

Heartbroken, she cries out, “I can’t do this… Core, please honey come here..”

She says to the 911 operator, “I can’t get him to the ground.”

Once he is on the ground, she says, “Ok, he’s on the ground..  He’s opening his mouth..  He’s trying to breath.”

She cries out, “He’s completely, completely gone,”  and asks, “What happened?”

The 911 operator instructs her to kneel down, tilt back his mouth  and open up his mouth to see if there’s any food or vomit.

“I don’t see any food or vomit,” Judy says.

The operator then instructs her how to perform c.p.r. on her son.

She says, “OKAY.”

As she desperately tries to save her son’s life, she keeps  crying out, “What’s going on?

“What’s happening?

“This is ridiculous.

“He had a fever today… Oh my God.”
