Rodney King: Fiancee screaming, sobbing during 911 call
During the five-minute call, Cynthia Kelley is largely unintelligible, crying, yelling and repeatedly begging, “Please hurry up, please. Oh my god.”
"He’s not moving," Kelley said. "He’s at the bottom of the swimming pool.”
She told detectives she was unable to rescue him herself because she was a poor swimmer.
Kelley said she "heard something fall like a table" and when she looked over, she saw King at the bottom of the swimming pool.
Authorities pulled King out of the pool, unresponsive. They attempted CPR, but King was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital.
Police said King’s body showed no signs of trauma, and no traces of blood were found on the concrete pool deck or in the water.
The coroner's office conducted an autopsy Monday, but officials will not have a final cause of death for King until the completion of toxicology tests in six to eight weeks, San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department spokeswoman Jodi Miller said.
