There are claims today that Lindsay Lohan's collapse last week was played down, as the actress' nurse speaks out about her 'life-threatening' condition.
According to new reports, Lindsay's nurse told emergency service operators she was in a life threatening condition after collapsing at her hotel last week. The nurse's 911 call has just been released and in the conversation, the nurse is heard describing Lindsay is being in a "code three" condition, defined as a "life-threatening state".
The nurse, known only as Ben, was one of the first people on the scene after Lindsay called her production team last Friday, complaining of feeling unwell after working a 13-hour day. According to TMZ, when the nurse found the 25-year-old star unresponsive, he decided to make the emergency call, telling the operator:
"It's serious. A code three."
The nurse also allegedly told the emergency service that it was a situation worthy of lights and siren, and that they had to get there as soon as possible.
Paramedics soon arrived at the Beverly Hills hotel and decided nothing was seriously wrong with Lindsay and left without referring her to hospital. At the time her representative, Steve Honig, told E! New that the collapse was due to the star's "gruelling schedule" on the set of new film 'Liz and Dick'.
