“I need a f—ing ambulance! What part of send an ambulance don’t you f—ing hear? Send a god— ambulance now!” shouts Kid Rock in a chilling call to 911 after his 30-year-old assistant Michael Sacha was killed in an ATV accident early Monday morning (April 25) at Rock’s Nashville Home.
In the five-minute-long police recording, Rock starts calmly enough, stating in a shaken voice, “My assistant looks to be dead from a Polaris ATV accident.” Then he provides necessary information to the 911 operator and repeats himself when she tells his his phone is “breaking up really badly.”
A minute into the call Rock asks the operator, “Did you send the ambulance?” and she replies, “I have not yet because I don’t know what’s going on. What is your name sir?”
That’s when Rock becomes audibly flustered. “Send an ambulance now! My Polaris is off the driveway and my assistant looks to be dead. There’s a body laying next to it!”
“Sir, you yelling at me is not going to help your situation,” She continues. “I’m gonna send an ambulance. I’m just trying to figure out what’s going on, okay?”
At that point Rock loses it and a woman he is with takes the phone and explains what seems to have happened. She adds that she was getting ready to go to the airport with the rocker when they found Sacha was not in the house.
“Oh my God, can you please just send somebody? He’s off to the side of the driveway and we have an ATV and we heard the engine running. It’s in the trees and it’s still running. I don’t think you can help him, just please send somebody. I don’t want to look, but I don’t think he’s alive. He’s dead!”
The operator tells the woman to check the body to see if they can administer CPR, and she replies, “His head is all smashed up. He’s gone.”
When paramedics and police arrived they found Sacha was dead on arrival.
In a post on his website, Rock said Sacha was “one of the greatest young men I have ever had the pleasure to not only work with, but also to become friends with.”
Kid Rock is scheduled to headline at the Taste of Country Music Festival, WE Fest and Country on the River this summer and will also join Jason Aldean at his sold-out show at Fenway Park in Boston in September.
