RIALTO (CBS) — Police have released the 911 audio of the call reporting Rodney King at the bottom of his Rialto pool.

King, 47, died Sunday after his fiancee Cynthia Kelley found him at the bottom of pool of the home they shared in Rialto.

An autopsy was performed on King Monday, but the cause of death was deferred while the coroner awaits toxicology results.

Kelley is heard frantically telling dispatchers to hurry so she can call her mother and King’s mother.

Kelley: “Hurry up, please! Oh my God! (sobbing) Hurry up! I gotta call my mom, I gotta call his mom. This is crazy!”

Dispatcher: “Ma’am, ma’am, how old is he?”

Kelley: “(Unintelligible) Hurry up please! What? Please, hurry up, please. Oh my God.”

Dispatcher: “Ma’am, listen to me, we need to help him until they get there. How old is he?”

Kelley: “Rodney King, the guy that got beat by the police!”

Dispatcher: “OK, how old is he?”

Kelley: “He’s 47 years old. He’s not moving! He’s at the bottom of the swimming pool!”

King became famous after his videotaped beating by Los Angeles Police officers in 1991. The acquittal of those officers of his beating sparked the 1992 Los Angeles riots.

The 911 call details moments after King was found in the pool
LOS ANGELES -- Rodney King's fiancee told authorities she was sleeping when she heard something fall and then found him at the bottom of the pool, according to a 911 call authorities released Tuesday.
King's fiancee, Cynthia Kelley, repeatedly implored authorities to hurry to his Rialto, Calif., home. In the call early Sunday, Kelley tells a dispatcher that she tried to rouse King but he wasn't responding.
"He's not moving," Kelley says at one point. "I was sleeping, all of a sudden I heard something fall like the table and then I looked over and then I went to find him and he's at the bottom of the swimming pool. He's still there. Please hurry up."
The 5 minute, 15 second phone call ends with the arrival of police officers who pulled King from the pool and began life-saving efforts. He was taken to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead.
At one point, Kelley told dispatchers that the man in the pool was King, "the guy that got beat by the police."
Police have said they have found no signs of foul play and continue to investigate King's case as an accidental drowning.
Authorities are awaiting toxicology results and said they'll use them in conjunction with an autopsy performed Monday to determine how King died.
King became famous after his severe beating by Los Angeles police in 1991 was captured on videotape and broadcast worldwide.
The trial of four officers charged with felony assault in the beating ended after a jury with no black members acquitted three of the officers on state charges; a mistrial was declared for a fourth.
The verdict sparked one of the most costly and deadly race riots in the nation's history.
