Ritchie immediately placed a 911 call in which he repeatedly tells the operator to send an ambulance. Ritchie is audibly upset and somewhat hard to understand, but it is clear he is asking for an ambulance after communicating his address. A copy of the call was released by TMZ (below).
Ritchie becomes so upset with the operator that he eventually hands the phone off to a female friend who finishes the call after answering several rounds of questions with the operator.
Many online commenters have called for the operator to be reprimanded or fired for failing to send help sooner. Many of the comments are very derogatory in nature.
“He was a member of our family and one of the greatest young men I have ever had the pleasure to not only work with, but also to become friends with,” Ritchie said in a statement on his web site. “I know I speak for us all in sharing my deepest condolences to his family. I cannot imagine how they must feel.”
