911 call from Lisa Marie Presley’s housekeeper before singer went into cardiac arrest reveals frantic scene
In the Jan. 12 audio clip obtained by the New York Post, Presley’s clerk can be heard trying to get rescue workers to the Calabasas home.
“What is your emergency address?” asks the operator, trying to understand the housekeeper’s answer.
After trying to sort out the “next street around the corner,” the housekeeper admits, “I really don’t know.”
The operator then asks to speak to “someone else there”.

“There’s a security gate in the neighborhood, but they just let them through,” he says. “How close are you? How far are you?”
