AUDIO: Whitney Houston 911 call released

The 911 call for Whitney Houston has been released.

Gossip site TMZ has posted audio of the February 11 call from the Beverly Hilton to authorities.

“This is security from the Beverly Hilton. I need paramedics; apparently I have 46-year-old female found in the bathroom,” said a member of hotel security. “I’m not sure if she fell or if she was in the bathroom with the water.”

The recently-released coroner’s report indicates the singer was discovered submerged face-down in hot water in the bathtub of her hotel suite with a unidentified white powdery residue left in a spoon on the bathroom counter.

The report confirmed that the 48-year-old singer drowned in a bathtub, with heart disease and cocaine use listed as contributing factors. It concluded that Houston’s death was accidental.

A personal assistant found her dead in the Beverly Hilton Hotel, the report said. The water was described as “extremely hot,” and the singer had scalding burns when she was examined. Houston was last seen alive by her personal assistant Feb. 11 between 2:35 p.m. and 3 p.m., the report stated.

On a counter in the bathroom, investigators found an ashtray filled with cigarette butts and a “small spoon with a white crystal-like substance in it, and a rolled-up piece of white paper.”
