Prince 911 Caller Believes His Death Could Have Been Prevented


(Classic Rock) The man who called 911 to report Prince's death says he has thought about how the pop icon's passing could have been prevented in the weeks since the tragedy.

Autopsy reports recently revealed that the singer died of an accidental opioid overdose on April 21. The document claims he administered the dose of painkiller himself.

Andrew Kornfeld, the son of Prince's physician, was sent to the musician's Paisley Park home in Minnesota to help him - but was too late and ended up making the emergency call instead.

He says (via CNN): "As I told the 911 dispatcher on April 21, those on the scene were distraught, which was why I was the one to place the call. But what happened has made me think, long and hard, about what steps we must take to prevent such entirely unnecessary loss of life.

"I have thought about what might have produced a different outcome. What if his troubles could have been addressed effectively, and much sooner?" Read more here.
