On Friday, audio of first responders' speaking to fire dispatch on Saturday as they arrived at the Paul Walker crash scene last Saturday was released (via TMZ). The recording shows that emergency personnel knew right away that there was no chance anyone survived the fiery wreck.
Firefighters, who reportedly responded to the scene of the accident in under three minutes after the 911 call was made, told dispatch that the "Fast and the Furious" actor, along and the driver, Roger Rodas, were "two fatalities" and "dead on arrival."
Death was near instantaneous, according to Los Angeles County Coroner spokesman Ed Winter, who said
We didn’t give exact time of death, but it was probably within a nanosecond, pretty much instantaneous, not a matter of a minute or more.
For those unaware, both Rodas and Walker were involved in a severe single-car accident in Santa Clarita, Calif., last Saturday.
Both were killed. Walker is perhaps best known for his role as Brian O'Conner in "The Fast and the Furious" film series. He was 40.
