Another late-night visit from paramedics to the Windermere, Fla. home of Tiger Woods and family began with a frantic 911 call Tuesday morning -- from his wife Elin Nordegren.

Authorities have released audio of the 2:30 a.m. call made by a woman with a Scandinavian accent, believed to be Nordegren, 29. Heard in the background: a crying baby, but no evidence of her husband Woods' presence in the house. (Listen to the call here.)

"Oh my god," she says in the tape. "My mom just collapsed." In the three minute conversation, a 911 operator talks an emotional female caller through the emergency. The caller says that her 57 year-old mother (believed to be Barbro Holmberg) "collapsed in the bathroom."

"She said she collapsed and she fainted ...and she's been down for a while," the caller explains, adding that she heard her mother's fall from elsewhere in the house and rushed to her side.

After the caller puts the phone down to check on her mother, the 911 operator seems to successfully calm her down. "I think we're fine," the caller says, telling the operator that the paramedics don't need to come after all. "It's not urgent," she says as the conversation winds down.

The operator notes that they'd prefer to visit and make sure that the situation is under control.

Earlier Tuesday, it was confirmed that Holmberg, 57, was in stable condition after being rushed to the hospital early Tuesday morning. A spokesperson said she is recovering nicely back at her daughter and son-in-law's home.
