The 54-year-old actor died at his home on Saturday
The dispatch call made in response to Matthew Perry is revealing more details about the actor’s death.
The dispatch audio, obtained by TMZ, references “drowning” after Perry was found dead in a jacuzzi at his Los Angeles home on Saturday. He was 54.
In the 15-second clip, a man says, “Agent 23. Rescue 23. EMS 9 on the radio. In response to the drowning,” as first responders were sent to Perry’s home.
TMZ reported on Saturday that a call was made from Perry’s address for first responders to come for a person in cardiac arrest after he was discovered unresponsive at his home. No drugs or foul play were found at the scene, according to the outlet.
A spokesperson for the Los Angeles Police Department told PEOPLE that officers responded to a call at Perry's address regarding the death of a male in his 50s, though they would not confirm the deceased's identity.
Representatives for Perry did not immediately respond to PEOPLE's request for comment.
Perry’s mother Suzanne Morrison, father John Bennett Perry, and stepfather Dateline‘s Keith Morrison were captured arriving at the actor’s residence hours after his death on Saturday in footage also released by TMZ.
Six days prior to his death and what turned out to be his final Instagram post, Perry shared a photo of himself in a jacuzzi. He wrote, “Oh, so warm water swirling around makes you feel good? I'm Mattman."
Perry was best known for his role as Chandler Bing on the hit sitcom Friends, which he starred in alongside Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc and David Schwimmer, from 1994 to 2004.
Warner Bros. issued a statement about the beloved star following his death on Saturday: “We are devastated by the passing of our dear friend Matthew Perry. Matthew was an incredibly gifted actor and an indelible part of the Warner Bros. Television Group family. The impact of his comedic genius was felt around the world, and his legacy will live on in the hearts of so many. This is a heartbreaking day, and we send our love to his family, his loved ones, and all of his devoted fans."
Despite his success, Perry battled with personal struggles of drug and alcohol addiction, which he opened up to PEOPLE about last year and detailed in his 2022 memoir, Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing.
Speaking about his opioid addiction in 1997, he told PEOPLE last October: “I hadn’t had a pill before that. That first high from it was euphoria. And then I didn’t need to drink, which made you sweat and made you smell of alcohol. Ultimately that’s how my friends knew that I was doing something else, because I stopped drinking.”

Perry said that his addiction began when he secured the role of Chandler on Friends. “I could handle it, kind of,” he continued. “But by the time I was 34, I was really entrenched in a lot of trouble.”
“I didn’t know how to stop,” he added. “The disease and the addiction is progressive, so it gets worse and worse as you grow older.”
