Earlier this evening, ESPN.com released a report on a 911 call made from the home of Urban Meyer in the hours after the SEC Championship game. A call that ultimately led to the Florida coach being “rushed” to a local hospital.
Tonight, the Orlando Sentinel has made public the audio from the 911 call, which they obtained from the Alucha County Sherriff’s Office.
The call was placed at 4:27 a.m. ET on Dec. 6 by Meyer’s wife Shelley. Shelley Meyer could be heard telling the 911 operator at the beginning of the call that “my husband’s having chest pain. He’s having chest pain, he just woke up in the middle of the night and said he’s having chest pain. He’s on the floor.”
Shelley Meyer could be heard repeatedly throughout the audio tape saying some derivative of “Urban, Urban, talk to me.”
Knowing who exactly this conversation involves, it is quite chilling listening to the conversation between Meyer’s wife and the 911 operator. The fact that there was the coach of a two-time BcS champion school lying on the floor, unresponsive, throughout this conversation makes it very, very unsettling to listen to.
