Lindsay Lohan emergency call 'life-threatening'

The 911 call made when Lindsay Lohan was found unresponsive in her hotel room recently was classed as "life-threatening" according to a report.

In a recording of the emergency telephone call obtained by, the caller warned the operator that the person the call was made about was at risk of losing their life.

Paramedics rushed to Lindsay's side last week at a Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Marina Del Rey, California.

Lindsay informed someone from the 'Liz & Dick' production team she wasn't feeling well on Friday (15.06.12) morning - and producers dispatched a doctor to the hotel.

Before arriving, the doctor apparently called the hotel and asked someone to check on Lindsay.

When a member of staff to Lindsay's door to check on her they determined she was "unresponsive."

Medical experts eventually arrived and decided nothing was wrong. They left without transporting Lindsay to the hospital.
