Today we mourn the loss of another pop icon.
Prince has passed away at the age of 57.
“A MALE down, not breathing.”
The 9/11 call from emergency responders requesting paramedics attend Prince’s $10 million Minnesota estate has been released by authorities as more details about the singer’s dramatic medical history come to light, NEWS.COM.AU reports.
In the 19-second audio, the dispatcher is heard putting out the call for a “person down, not breathing” after the singer was discovered unresponsive in his elevator at 9:43am.
Six minutes later, at 9:49am, emergency crew began working on the pop star, but declared Prince dead 18 minutes later, at 10:07am.
The official cause of his death is not yet known, but it is believed a serious bout of flu may be to blame.
A week ago, on April 15, the pop icon’s private jet was forced to make an unscheduled landing after the star’s health declined after a performance in Atlanta. He spent three hours in the hospital for a respiratory condition before being released and sent home to rest.
Tributes flow as fans mourn the loss of a great singer.
