The new sound out of a 911 call gives a glimpse of the frenetic scene of a Phoenix, Arizona, health facility after a woman in a vegetative state for 27 years has given birth.
Five minutes of the 911 call issued by Hacienda Healthcare on December 29 was released on Friday. The Associated Press reported. The call prompted the Phoenix police to open an investigation for sexual assault.
The police broadcast the sound of a nurse's 911 call following the delivery of a disabled woman to a health facility. The nurse said the staff did not know that the woman was pregnant.

The call begins with a woman shouting, "The baby is turning blue! The baby becomes blue! "
The woman, who identified herself as a nurse, then passed information to the dispatcher.
"One of our patients just had a baby and we did not know that she was pregnant," said the nurse.
She said the baby was not receptive and that other nurses gave her CPR. The nurse repeatedly told the dispatcher that the delivery was a "total surprise.
"About four minutes after the start of the call, a baby can be heard crying in the background.
"Oh, the baby is breathing. Oh my God. Thank God, said the nurse, relieved.
It is unclear whether the nurse who heard the call regularly takes care of the disabled woman.
The woman and the little boy go back to a hospital, KPHO-TV reported.
The 29-year-old woman has been disabled since her near drowning at the age of 2 and has been a patient of Hacienda Healthcare since the age of 3 years. Investigators are trying to determine who has impregnated her.
Phoenix Police Sgt. Tommy Thompson told KPHO-TV this DNA was collected from "a large number of individuals".
The revelation that a woman in a vegetative state was raped inside a health care facility horrified many, reported the AP. The CEO of Hacienda Healthcare resigned earlier this week, and the institution announced new security measures, including banning male staff members from entering patients' rooms without the presence of a female staff member.
The woman's family members of the San Carlos Apache tribe, issued a statement through the intermediary of their lawyer, claiming that they are "shocked, traumatized and shocked by the abuse and neglect of their daughter at Hacienda Healthcare" and that they are "not emotionally ready to make a public statement" KPHO-TV reported.
