Larry King’s wife Shawn was found barely conscious in late May by her dad! He calls 911 frantically trying to save his daughter’s life! Listen to the shocking 911 audio that has just been released!

Larry King‘s wife Shawn, 50, overdosed on pills May 28, at her home in Provo, Utah and RadarOnline has just obtained the audio from the 911 call. On the 911 call you can hear Shawn’s dad, Karl Engemann, 76, explaining to the 911 operator that he’s found his daughter and she won’t wake up.

“She may have overmedicated. I don’t think she did it on purpose,” says Karl. “Last night she seemed confused about what she had taken, the last time she had taken it.”

Karl goes on to say that he had last seen his daughter the night before around 11:30pm but that after she didn’t answer the phone the next morning he decided to find her.

“She’s unconscious. I slap her and I holler at her and she opens her eyes half way and puts them back down again,” he says. “She’s on something to help with anxiety and depression.”

Shawn’s dad says repeatedly that this is not a suicide attempt, “No, no, no, it wouldn’t be suicidal.”

Shawn entered rehab in 2008 for an addiction to pain killers. She and Larry filed for divorce on April 14 but ended up calling it off and telling the public they were going to work things out.

I can’t wake her up,” Shawn’s father Karl Engemann told a 911 operator on May 28 when he found his daughter unresponsive at her Provo, Utah home.

I was alclauty happy to see Erica Hill interview you yesterday. I used to watch her all the time when she was the anchor of an evening newscast on CNN. Now I think she’s on Anderson Cooper’s show, but I haven’t seen her in 6 months or so. She’s one smart cookie.
