Details of Lamar Odom's 911 Call Are Nothing Short of Heartbreaking

lamar odomIt was only a matter of time. The Lamar Odom 911 call has been released -- and it's worse than we thought. TMZ obtained the heartbreaking phone call that Richard Hunter, the media director for the Love Ranch South, made to authorities. In the phone call, the state of the basketball player is described, and needless to say, it's absolutely terrifying.

Two phone calls to 911 were made: the first by a female employee, who says that there was blood coming out of Odom's nose; the second by Hunter, who tells the operator that there's a white-pinkish substance coming out of Odom's nose and mouth. Hunter also mentions that there was cocaine on the basketball player and that he was using herbal Viagra. Several employees are heard in the background, adding various pieces of information -- including that he's barely breathing -- and, understandably, everyone sounds pretty distraught. 

The whole situation is heartbreaking. Clearly, Odom is, and has been, in desperate need of help for a long time now. It's terrible that this is how things have gone but, in all honesty, not all that surprising. 

From the sound of things, Odom is making small improvements, though. Evidently, he briefly opened his eyes and even squeezed Kim Kardashian's hand at one point. That said, he has a long way to go before he's back to normal. 

Here's to hoping he makes a speedy recovery, and that he gets the help he needs.
