Austin Box Dies; Audio Of 911 Call Includes 'He Takes Pain Pills' Statement

Audio of the 911 call reporting Austin Box's death, has been made available via this story by the Tulsa World. J.T. Cobble, the son of Box's high school coach, placed the call from his home. While making the call, Cobble didn't sound frantic, but was clearly dismayed and described himself as "a little freaked out" while trying to help Box.

When the 911 operator answered his call, Cobble identified the unresponsive person as Box, describing him as "a guy who stayed with me last night," adding that "he takes pain pills." The operator walked Cobble through checking for a pulse, checking for breathing and performing compressions.

A police officer arrived on the scene as Cobble worked to try and revive Box, at which point the operator hung up, turning the situation over to the officer on the scene.
