Rest in power Maya.

Maya Angelou 911 Call Released 

Just before Maya Angelou’s passing, her distraught caretaker called 911 to ask for help.

TMZ reports:

Maya Angelou had informed her staff she did NOT want to be resuscitated in the event of her death … this according to the caretaker who called 911.

The caretaker called 911 to report Maya’s death — but told the operator she was hesitant to perform CPR because the famed poet had previously been crystal clear … when she passed, don’t try to bring her back.

The operator tells the caretaker to perform CPR regardless — because Maya didn’t have a “Do Not Resuscitate” order — and the caretaker complied … to no avail.

As we reported, Angelou passed away Wednesday at the age of 86.

So sad, her caretaker was obviously torn between honoring her wishes and wanting to help.
