Rest in power Maya.
Maya Angelou 911 Call Released
Just before Maya Angelou’s passing, her distraught caretaker called 911 to ask for help.
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.
