Alec Baldwin's daughter dialed 911 when he didn't answer phone

Posted on

30 Rock star Alec Baldwin’s 14-year-old daughter, Ireland, dialed 911 last week when she couldn’t reach her Manhattan-based father from Los Angeles, her uncle, Don “Skip” Basinger, tells People. The emergency call led to his widely reported brief hospitalization Wednesday night. “Ireland was talking to her dad and they got into an argument,” Basinger said. “He got upset. She tried to call him back and she couldn’t reach him, so she called 911.” The Associated Press reported that the “misunderstanding” had happened when Baldwin threatened to take pills after the two argued, but Baldwin’s rep said no drugs or alcohol were involved, and released a statement saying that he was “quickly released from the hospital” and “completely fine.”
