An oxygen tank malfunction may have possibly contributed to the death of Martin Short's wife Nancy Dolman.
Dolman, 58, who was suffering from cancer since 2007, passed away last week.
In the 911 call right before her death, a woman can be heard saying that the bed-ridden Nancy "is not breathing" and "she's going to die," before requesting an ambulance.
The woman goes on to tell the 911 operator that "This patient… was on oxygen, we had problems with the gauge here in the tank, she’s off oxygen."
At the time of her death, the woman said that Nancy was surrounded by people.
Martin has been nominated for an Emmy for his role in the FX show Damages, but will not be in attendance at Sunday night's awards show.
We wish him and his family the best.
