(TMZ) TMZ has obtained the 911 call placed by Junior Seau's girlfriend moments after the NFL legend shot himself in the chest Wednesday at his Oceanside, CA home.
Junior's girlfriend called 911 after discovering his unconscious body around 10AM. She had just returned from the gym. Authorities responded and attempted to revive Seau, but life-saving efforts were unsuccessful.
Seau was pronounced dead on the scene soon after. He was 43. Seau's family claims he exhibited no signs of depression before his death -- but has since donated his brain to be studied for concussion research.
As we previously reported, the manner in which Seau killed himself -- gunshot to the chest -- is leading many to believe he wanted to leave his brain intact so researchers could study the long-term effects of concussions sustained in the NFL. Listen here.
