Megan Noderer, Junior Seau's girlfriend, called 911 shortly after discovering the future NFL Hall of Famer dead of apparent suicide Wednesday morning.
Police have ruled Junior Seau's death a suicide after he shot himself in the chest at his Oceanside, Calif., home, a suicide, so the 911 call isn't surprising.
It is as horrific and tragic as it gets, though. Be forewarned, as Nodereris so hysterical during the call she can hardly speak after finding Junior:
Megan tells the dispatcher that the 43-year-old athlete wasn't breathing when she arrived and had appeared to have shot himself "in the heart."
Authorities responded and attempted to revive Seau, but life-saving efforts were unsuccessful. Seau was soon pronounced dead on the scene.
Seau's family claims he exhibited no signs of depression before his death, but has since donated his brain to be studied for concussion research.
The star's tragic, shocking passing has renewed the serious debate over the link between pro football and lasting brain injuries to its players.
