The emotional 911 call placed by Rodney King’s fiancée moments after she discovered his body at the bottom of his pool in Rialto, CA Sunday has been released to the public.
King’s fiancée, Cynthia Kelley, is heard frantically telling dispatchers to hurry so she can call her mother and King’s mother-
Kelley: “Hurry up, please! Oh my God! (sobbing) Hurry up! I gotta call my mom, I gotta call his mom. This is crazy!”
Dispatcher: “Ma’am, ma’am, how old is he?”
Kelley: “(Unintelligible) Hurry up please! What? Please, hurry up, please. Oh my God.”
Dispatcher: “Ma’am, listen to me, we need to help him until they get there. How old is he?”
Kelley: “Rodney King, the guy that got beat by the police!”
Dispatcher: “OK, how old is he?”
Kelley: “He’s 47 years old. He’s not moving! He’s at the bottom of the swimming pool!”
Kelley told cops she heard King banging on the window around 5AM, then heard him fall in the pool. She also said he had been drinking and smoking weed soon before his death.
Right now, King’s death is still being investigated as an accident, but friends believe foul play was involved.
