911 call from hotel where Houston died is released

Authorities have released the 911 call hotel security made to paramedics after Whitney Houston's lifeless body was found in a hotel room two months ago.

The minute-long call reveals few details about the Grammy-winning singer's demise. The caller says people in Houston's hotel room repeatedly hung up on hotel personnel in the moments after discovering her in a bathtub.

The call is from an unidentified security worker at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, where Houston died Feb. 11. The caller tells a dispatcher that a woman is not breathing but does not identify the woman as Houston.

Coroner's officials have ruled the 48-year-old's death an accidental drowning, with heart disease and cocaine use listed as contributing factors.

Beverly Hills police said Wednesday that they have closed their investigation.
