Demi Lovato’s 911 Caller Reportedly Asked Paramedics Not To Use Sirens After Apparent Overdose
“No sirens please, right?”
Following news that Demi Lovato had suffered an apparent drug overdose, audio of the 911 made from her home has been released, suggesting that whoever made the call wanted to keep a low profile.
Paramedics were called to the 25-year-old singer’s home in the Hollywood Hills shortly before noon on Tuesday, where they reportedly found her unconscious. She was later treated with naloxone, an opioid overdose reversal medication, according to NBC News.
Demi Lovato’s spokesperson later confirmed in a statement to the outlet that Lovato was “awake” and asked that the singer’s privacy be respected.
In audio of the 911 call obtained by TMZ and published on Thursday, the caller, after opting not to share Lovato’s age with the dispatcher when asked, later requested that the paramedics not turn on their sirens while en route to the home.
“No sirens please, right?” the unidentified caller said at one point. The dispatcher then responded that he had “no control over that” because the situation constituted a medical emergency.
According to earlier reports, Lovato was rushed to Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, where she was reported as being stable, alert, and breathing later that day.
Following news of Lovato’s overdose, celebrities took to social media with an outpouring of support.
