Demi Moore 911 Call Actress Convulsing Smoked Something: The newly released 911 call placed from Demi Moore’s home on Monday night reveals that the 49-year-old actress was smoking something and was “convulsing,” “semi conscious,” and “burning up” before help arrived.

The heavily redacted tape reveals mass confusion at Moore’s household on Monday night. “Sir, this is an emergency,” a female caller says, before giving the dispatcher Moore’s Beverly Hills address. She becomes increasingly panicked, saying, “We need an ambulance here as soon as possible, please.”

She also says that Moore had been taking some “other stuff” recently but didn’t know what it was and mentions that Moore has been having “issues.”

Another woman tells the dispatcher that Moore is “burning up” and not breathing regularly but is able to squeeze her hand. At the end of the call, a man takes the phone to give the dispatcher directions to Moore’s home and says that she’s calmed down. “Now she’s breathing fine and she’s not convulsing,” he says.
