AceShowbiz - The 911 call from Demi Lovato's apparent drug overdose has been released. In an audio recording obtained by TMZ on Thursday, July 26, her female assistant alerted a male dispatcher of the incident while asking the paramedics to turn off the sirens on their ambulances.
When asked whether she was with Demi at the time, the assistant calmly replied, "I was. I'm downstairs. There are other people went in. We just need to get somebody out here." After the dispatcher told her that "we are going with lights and sirens," she said, "Wait, no sirens, please, right?"
However, the dispatcher told her that turning off the sirens was not an option, saying, "No, no, this is a medical emergency. I don't have control over that. This is definitely a medical emergency and we need to get there as fast as possible." Later in the call, the dispatcher told the assistant to "wave" the paramedics down and to put any pets "in a room" after dogs were heard barking in the background.
The Los Angeles Fire Department did not immediately respond to request for comment.
Demi was rushed to hospital after being found unconscious at a home in the Hollywood Hills. Her rep later confirmed in a statement that the singer "is awake and with her family who want to express thanks to everyone for the love, prayers and support." The cause of her overdose remains unknown, but a new report suggested the singer used Meth before passing out.
TMZ recently reported that Demi was partying all night long to celebrate her backup dancer's birthday prior to her overdose. The "Cool for the Summer" singer then went to sleep, but when she hadn't left her bedroom by 11 A.M., her assistant checked on her. When the assistant couldn't wake her up, she called 911.
