Gary Coleman 911 tape released

Posted on

In a 911 recording released today, Gary Coleman’s wife is heard telling a dispatcher that the actor was bleeding from the back of his head, and that he suffered the injury after falling down in their Utah home. Shannon Price, Coleman’s wife, rang the emergency number two days before Coleman’s May 28 death. Says Price during the call: “I just don’t want him to die…I’m freaking out, like, really bad.”

Price said during the call that she was not in the same room when Coleman apparently fell, and only heard a “big bang.” “Send someone quick because I don’t know if he’s, like, gonna be alive cause there’s a lot of blood on the floor,” she says in the tape. Read more in the AP‘s report.
