The emergency dispatch call from 15-year-old Paris Jackson's alleged suicide attempt last week was released yesterday.

A woman from the sheriff's department called the Los Angeles County Fire Department from Jackson's home, saying "Female has OD'd on 20 Motrin and cut her arm with a kitchen knife."

"She is awake and breathing, correct?" asked the dispatcher.

"Yes," said the woman.

You can listen to the entire call in the E! News video above. Paris was hospitalized after the June 5 incident and "is physically fine and receiving appropriate medical treatment," reports the Associated Press, based on statements made by her grandmother's lawyer.
