Brittany Murphy 911 call released

Brittany Murphy's mother screamed "please come back" to her daughter during the 911 call on the morning the actress died, a recording of the call has revealed.

Brittany's mother Sharon is heard crying and telling a fire dispatcher that the actress wasn't breathing, before the dispatcher gives directions on how to try to revive her.

She relays the information to Brittany's husband, Simon Monjack, who had already started CPR and is heard in the background trying to revive the actress.

"My daughter's passed out," Sharon Murphy tells the dispatcher, adding that the actress had been ill, had vomited and was feeling dizzy. She states that her daughter wasn't taking any medication.

She also said on the eight-minute call that no-one saw how Brittany collapsed. Sharon Murphy is heard crying and wailing at times on the call.

"Brittany please come back!" she is heard screaming.

Brittany, 32, was found in the bathroom of her Hollywood Hills home on December 20 and was later pronounced dead at a local hospital.

Coroner's officials are awaiting the results of toxicology tests to determine how she died. They have said the family reported Murphy was ill with flulike symptoms in the days before her death.

Her family laid her to rest at a funeral service on December 24 at Forest Lawn Memorial Park, Hollywood Hills.
