TMZ has obtained the 911 call placed by Ric Flair … moments after the wrestling legend discovered his son Reid Flair unresponsive in a Charlotte, NC hotel room.
Ric frantically tells the operator, “He’s out cold! He’s out cold and he’s purple!”
As we reported, Ric’s 25-year-old son Reid — who had just returned to the U.S. after wrestling in Japan — passed away on March 29th.
The investigation into Reid’s death is ongoing, but he has struggled with substance abuse issues in the past.
