KANYE WEST’s late mother DONDA was revived by two women after she had a heart attack, according to emergency 911 recordings.
The recording, released by the Los Angeles Fire Department on Monday (17Dec07), hears an unidentified woman tells a male emergency dispatcher Donda West recently had surgery. She says West had a heart attack, had stopped breathing and is "cold and clammy." The woman says she and another unidentified woman are trying to administer Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).
As the two women talk, the dispatcher becomes frustrated, saying: "Ma’am, let me tell you how to do this. You need to listen. You’re not listening to what I’m telling you. You’re not helping the person at all. … Have the other people be quiet so I can tell you what to do." The dispatcher then instructs the woman in CPR, telling her to clear West’s mouth and administer breaths. The women attempt to resuscitate West, but she doesn’t respond.
West, 58, died on 10 November (07) - the day after she underwent breast reduction, tummy tuck and liposuction procedures.
