The calls were released by Canada's Globe and Mail newspaper. They were made in French after Richardson fell and hit her head during a skiing lesson on the slopes of the Quebec ski resort on March 16th.
Hear the 911 Call in French
According to the newspaper, a medic in an ambulance with Richardson told staff waiting at a Canadian hospital: "I'm arriving with a female in her 40's ... [she's] disoriented ... It's following ... a ski fall that happened at noon. Soon afterward she presents signs of confusion, a concussion."
According to the Globe and Mail, paramedics first arrived at the ski resort where Richardson had fallen at 1 p.m. At 1:11 p.m. the medics reported that Richardson had declined treatment. She walked back to her room with her ski instructor, where she later began experiencing a severe headache and 911 was called again later that afternoon at 2:59 p.m.
While Richardson was en route to the hospital, the Globe and Mail reports that just before 4 p.m. she was "verbal" according to paramedics. At the time she registered a 12 of 15 on the Glasgow coma scale, which is not ideal but still treatable, according to the newspaper. However, she only scored a 0 on an orientation reading, meaning that she was unaware of the date, where she was, or what had happened.
After arriving at the local hospital, Richardson was taken to a Montreal trauma center, arriving at 6:38 p.m. The renowned stage and screen actress passed away two days later after being taken off life support at a hospital in New York.
