article imageLedger's Massage Therapist Called Olsen Twin Before Dialling 911

By KJ Mullins     Jan 25, 2008 in Entertainment
The massage therapist that discovered Heath Ledger was not breathing called Mary Kate Olsen three times before dialing 911. She spent a total of nine minutes dialing the actress.
After the paramedics arrives she dialed the actress for a fourth time.
Authorities believe that when the massage therapist arrived Ledger was already dead. They do not believe there was any foul play related to the actor's death.
These details have come out as the Ledger family makes arrangements to bring their son home to Australia for burial. There will be no details of the service shared with the media.
There were several prescription medicines in the Manhattan apartment where Ledger was staying leading medical examiners to believe his death was the result of an overdose.
What is now known about the timeline of Ledger's last few hours show that at 1 p.m. he was alive and snoring according to the housekeeper. She was in his room to change a light bulb at that time.
When Diane Wolozin arrived to give the actor a massage there was no answer from knocking at his bedroom door. When Wolozin discovered that he was not breathing she used Ledger's phone to call his friend Mary Kate Olsen prior to calling 911 a total of 3 times starting at 3:17 p.m. That call lasted for 49 seconds. Three minutes later she again called Olsen for a call that lasted for a little over a minute and a half. The third call was placed at 3:24 p.m. for 21 seconds. Two minutes later Wolozin dialed 911.
Between these calls Olsen called her own security guards to help with the situation. The paramedics and security guards both arrived at Ledger's apartment at the same time, 3:33 p.m. and rode up on the elevator together. The paramedics announced the young star dead at 3:36 p.m.
A minute after the paramedics arrived Wolozin called Olsen a last time.
Last November Ledger had given an interview with The New York Times stating that the stress from his last two projects, "The Dark Knight" and "I'm Not There" had caused for restless nights and he was having to take Ambien to get some sleep.
His former fiance Michelle Williams and the couple's two year old daughter arrived in Brooklyn on Wednesday evening from Sweden where Williams had been working on a film.
