LOS ANGELES (AP) -- According to a 911 call released by fire officials, Brad Renfro's girlfriend tried to revive the troubled actor after finding him unresponsive at his Los Angeles home.
On the recording, a woman tells a dispatcher she's been trying to wake up Renfro for an audition but he won't move.
She says Renfro's nose is bleeding and mentions he may have taken a few pills the night before. She tries to give him CPR after being instructed to do so by the dispatcher before paramedics arrive.
Fire officials released the tape Tuesday.
Renfro, a Knoxville, Tenn., native, died Jan. 15 of an overdose of heroin and morphine. He had publicly struggled with drugs and alcohol.
