New details about the final moments of Prince’s life have been revealed by the Sheriff’s office. Police arrived on the scene and found the legendary singer unresponsive in an elevator, at which time they frantically attempted to revive him with CPR. See the full police report here.
An attempt of live-saving CPR was not enough to save Prince in the final moments before he was pronounced dead. When police responded to the 911 call at his home at Paisley Park, they found him unconscious in an elevator, and rushed to try and restore life to his unresponsive body. Sadly, it was unsuccessful.
“On April 21, 2016 at about 9:43 am, sheriff’s deputies responded to a medical call at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen,” the police report from the Carver County Sheriff’s Office reads. “When deputies and medical personnel arrived, they found an unresponsive male adult in the elevator. First responders attempted to provide lifesaving CPR, but were unable to revive the victim. He was pronounced deceased at 10:07 a.m. He has been identified as Prince Rogers Nelson (57) of Chanhassen.”
The medical examiner’s office is “continuing to investigate the circumstances” surrounding Prince’s tragic death at this time, and will release the cause of death once it is confirmed.
However, as we previously reported, the 57-year-old was battling the flu in the weeks ahead of his passing, and was rushed to the hospital in the middle of the night after his plane was forced to make an emergency landing on April 15. He assured fans one day later that he was doing fine, but friends were not convinced.
“He hasn’t been feeling well all week,” an insider told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “He’s tenacious and wanted to go out, while his people wanted him to stay home and rest.”
On top of that, he was also photographed at his local Walgreens around 7 p.m. on April 20, where workers say they were concerned about how “frail and nervous” he looked, according to TMZ. Even more concerning, though, was that it was reportedly his fourth time there this week So sad.
