An 911 call reveals Lisa Marie Presley’s distraught housekeeper was desperate to get emergency services to the late singer’s LA mansion after she went into cardiac arrest.
Presley died at the age of 54 after being rushed to West Hills Hospital and Medical Center in California on Thursday. She was the only child of singer Elvis and Priscilla Presley.
During the phone conversation, which was picked up by the New York Post, the woman struggled to get Presley’s address to the 911 dispatcher.
“What is your emergency address?” the operator asked the distraught housekeeper who was calling from Presley’s home in Calabasas.

After an interrupted exchange of words, the officer asked if he could speak to someone else, at which point a man believed to be Presley’s ex-husband, Danny Keogh, took over. First responders appear to arrive seconds later.
The confusion began when the operator asked the housekeeper the name of a nearby street. “It’s the trip to Normandy,” she said, confused.
“Yes, but the next street on the corner is Providence Drive?” The policeman answered.
“I really don’t know…it’s Calabasas,” the housekeeper said before the operator asked if there was anyone else who could give them their location.
When the man believed to be Keogh picked up the phone, he expressed concern and asked how far away help was, saying, “How close, far are they?”
Just as the dispatcher explained that he did not know the exact whereabouts, help arrived.
“I think they’re here,” the man blurted out before the call was over.

After being rushed to hospital, she later suffered a second cardiac arrest and died with her mother Priscilla, 77, at her side
Presley’s housekeeper called 911 after discovering her boss had collapsed in the bathroom.
When paramedics arrived they managed to revive her and she got a pulse again, but she was brain dead on arrival at the hospital, TMZ reported Friday.
The family rushed to her bedside, where she was in an induced coma and on life support. When they learned that she was already brain dead, they signed a “do not resuscitate” order. She later suffered a second cardiac arrest and died with her mother Priscilla, 77, at her side.
“It is with a heavy heart that I share the devastating news that our beautiful daughter Lisa Marie has left us,” Priscilla Presley said in a statement Thursday night.
“She was the most passionate, strong and loving woman I have ever known.”
Her ex-husband Danny Keough, who is believed to have helped with the phone call, had returned to the home shortly after her collapse and was performing CPR until paramedics arrived.
Keough is the father of actress daughter Riley, 33, and son Benjamin, who took his own life in July 2020 at the age of 27.
