TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- Authorities have released the chilling 911 tapes in the death of Florida State University student Andrew Coffey.

The caller tells the 911 dispatcher, "We had a party last night and my friend passed out on the couch on his side and his lips are purple, his body's extremely stiff and I can't wake him up and I honestly... I don't feel a pulse."

When the dispatcher asks where the emergency call is coming in from, the caller was unable to provide an exact address. The caller is also unsure of Coffey's age.

The dispatcher then instructs the caller to place Coffey on the floor, flat on his back and coaches him and another friend through CPR.

The caller can be heard telling the dispatcher, "His body is really stiff. I’m not able to get his arm, like, on the ground."

The final six minutes of the call are the dispatcher counting "1, 2, 3, 4 ... " over and over again, guiding the caller through performing chest compressions on Coffey.

"1, 2, 3, 4 ... You still doing the chest compressions sir?" the dispatcher asks.

"Yes ma’am," the caller replies.

Near the end of the call, the caller can be heard telling the dispatcher that first responders have arrived at the scene.

"I’ll let you go sir. You did a good job,” the dispatcher says.

The redacted call lasts 10 minutes and 42 seconds.
