911 calls: Brittany Murphy vs. Danny Gans


SHARON MURPHY 911 CALL ..... JULIE GANS 911 CALL

How would one react upon awakening to find a loved one unexpectedly unresponsive, and from all indications, dead? The continuing drumbeat of celebrity deaths and the intense investigation and speculation accorded them by the media have made these awful events open to public scrutiny and interpretation. The 911 calls, made by the mother of tragic actress Brittany Murphy and the wife of Las Vegas superstar Danny Gans, however, reveal that reactions and actions of those tossed into the grief-stricken maelstrom vary considerably, and are certainly not so easy to judge.

Wow, that was night and day.

While I don't expect that everyone would start getting hysterical and crying out in such grief/pain immediately, like Brittany Murphy's mother, I think almost everyone would show some level of stress, panic, anxiety or fear while you're waiting for the paramedics to arrive, and working to keep the heart going/airway open.

After all, someone you love is there in front of you, possibly dying. Of course maybe if you knew that the person was already dead, had been for awhile, and it wasn't unexpected, you would be able to maintain your cool. Icey cool.

I find the calm, almost chipper and rehearsed way Julie Gans sounded in the 911 call about finding her husband not breathing VERY strange. The son in the background didn't sound upset either. Not trying to judge, just saying it comes across so odd.

Maybe they're just the calmest, most collected people on earth, even at times of great crisis.

Or not. Just sayin'....

A real shame, and if I may, a bitch. Yesterday I saw her last film, Abandoned, released posthumously, and honestly, it looks ominous. Perhaps it was the makeup, but was not seen, her healthy face he always had..
One of the last sentence that says, before going up a sign "In Memoriam" was: "I will live day by day."
It seems that in the end, could not be.

One hurts, she was a good actress with many projection and even he still had great for appearing.
