A frantic call to 911 seeking help for Donda West, the mother of Kanye West, on the day she died was posted online Monday.

The recording, posted at TMZ.com, captures a conversation between a distressed, unidentified caller and the 911 dispatcher. The caller says she and friends are attempting to administer CPR to West, who had stopped breathing after suffering what the caller assumes is a heart attack.

Informed of the recording, Dr. Jan Adams, the plastic surgeon who worked on Donda West before her death, told PEOPLE: “I have not heard the tape yet so I cannot comment at this time.”

West died Nov. 10 from possible complications from cosmetic surgery.

TMZ was posting the 8-minute call in segments Monday.
