Paris Jackson suicide attempt: Dispatch call released
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- The Los Angeles County Fire Department on Tuesday released audio of the emergency dispatch made after Paris Jackson's apparent suicide attempt last week.
Michael Jackson's daughter was rushed to the hospital around 1:30 a.m. on June 5. The call described the need for paramedics because a 15-year-old girl had taken 20 Motrin pills and cut herself with a kitchen knife.
During the emergency call, which lasted about a minute, the teen was described as conscious and breathing. The call was between a fire department dispatcher and a sheriff's department dispatcher, who was relaying information from the Calabasas home.
Paris' family told Eyewitness News that the teenager is physically fine and receiving appropriate medical treatment.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Mitchell Beckloff, who oversees the guardianship of Paris and her brothers, Prince and Blanket, has ordered an investigation into Paris' health and well-being.
