911 call released in death of FAMU band drum major- raw audio

Tallahassee, FL – The 911 call released in the death of a Florida A&M University band drum major sheds light on the events just prior to the death.

Robert Champion died earlier in the month following a football game in Orlando. Orange County authorities say he was vomiting and complaining of not being able to breathe in the parking lot of the hotel where the university's "Marching 100" band was staying.

The Orange County Sheriff says Champion's death is hazing related.
