A dramatic 911 call has confirmed the truth about Star Jones‘ plastic surgery nightmare. The View diva has tried to downplay The National Enquirer‘s exclusive story revealing how she almost died after having a breast lift. But the call from a frantic medic at Pacific Surgery Center in Santa Monica, California, has revealed how close Star came to dying.
“We have a patient who is on our surgery table, who we cannot stop from bleeding,” said the desperate aide in a call made at 4:56 pm on March 17.
The call was immediately transferred to emergency services, who rushed to Star’s aid.
Within minutes, an ambulance arrived and rushed the 44-year-old from the surgery center to the nearby Saint John’s Health Center, where doctors performed a lifesaving blood transfusion.
Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Anthony Griffin, who did not treat Star, confirmed she must have been in grave danger for the clinic to make the 911 call.
He said: “The hospital was just across the street and they dialed 911 — that’s extreme. They could have used a private ambulance or another vehicle. It means the patient had a good chance of dying.”
Representatives for Star did not return our calls.
