A 911 call made by Miami Heat star Chris Bosh and his wife after finding their masseuse had collapsed in their home last week, has been released.
In a recording of the nine-minute call, Bosh tells an operator that 41-year-old Chautele Cooksey’s condition is declining rapidly.
“I need a doctor here at my house,” Bosh says "A guest of mine isn’t feeling very well… she is having trouble breathing and that she needs an ambulance, adding: 'She’s passed out a couple of times'”
After a few minutes, Bosh's wife, Adrienne, takes over and begins to express concern at Cooksey's worsening condition.
Adrienne took to Twitter last Tuesday to express her remorse. "A beautiful soul was lost tonight. Never take the here and now for granted. Life can be so frail."
Police said no signs of foul play were found but Spokeswoman Vivian Hernandez says the department will conduct it's standard death investigation.
Police said a friend of the victim said Cooksey had survived cancer about a year ago. A cause of death has not been determined.
We wish to express our deepest sympathy to Cooksey’s family as well as the Bosh family who lost a dear friend during one of the most stressful periods anyone can imagine. We hope he uses this tragic incident as motivation for success that will bring glory to Cooksey’s memory.
