Gia Allemand Commits Suicide: Hear the Heartbreaking 911 Call
Gia Allemand's loved ones tried desperately to save her life. TMZ obtained the heartbreaking 911 call made on Monday, Aug. 12, after Allemand was found in her New Orleans home following her suicide attempt.
The 29-year-old Bachelor and Bachelor Pad star was taken off of life support on Aug. 14 after taking her own life by hanging herself. "While in her residency in New Orleans on Monday night, Ms. Allemand was found by her boyfriend, NBA basketball player Ryan Anderson, following an apparent suicide attempt. Mr. Anderson contacted 911 and emergency medical crews were immediately dispatched to the scene," a statement from Allemand's family said on Wednesday.
It's unclear if Allemand's boyfriend, New Orleans Pelicans NBA player Ryan Anderson, made the call himself. The 911 call cuts in and out, but a male voice can be heard relaying CPR instructions to someone else. "Keep going until the paramedics come," the man said calmly. "Keep going. Keep going. Stay calm. Keep going." He later said, "Okay, we've got two people doing CPR."
At one point, the caller gives instructions for someone to go meet the paramedics, yelling, "Ryan, Ryan, Ryan, Ryan . . . go down there. Now!"
"You're doing good," the caller coaches. "Keep going. Keep going . . . They'll be right here in a second, guys."
Friends told the New York Post that Allemand had a long battle with depression and was despondent of her relationship status with Anderson, 25. A source told Us Weekly that the model, convinced that the relationship's end was near, had been planning to move from the New Orleans home she shared with Anderson, and relocate to NYC to look for a job.
