A tape recording of the 911 call shows Disney workers took more than two minutes before starting CPR on the lifeless child.
A Mission: Space supervisor thought Daudi simply had passed out on the thrill ride. He didn't mention that the child was not breathing until a fire rescue dispatcher asked 1 minute 20 seconds into the emergency call.
"Is he breathing?" the female dispatcher asked.
"Is he breathing?" the male supervisor responded. "No. He's currently not breathing."
A quick back-and-forth followed.
"He's not breathing?" she asked.
"No," the man responded.
At 1 minute, 45 seconds, the dispatcher said, "OK, I need somebody to go over to the child, and I can give you directions to do CPR."
At 2 minutes 40 seconds on the 911 recording, the ride supervisor told the dispatcher that CPR was being done by a CPR-certified employee. Reedy Creek Fire Rescue paramedics arrived at 4 minutes 30 seconds.
When a heart stops, brain death begins within four to six minutes.
Reedy Creek Fire Rescue spokesman Bo Jones confirmed that CPR did not begin until more than 2½ minutes into the emergency call. He said the sooner CPR is begun after someone stops breathing, the better the chances are for survival.
