Audio from a 911 call reveals workers on duty at a private care facility on the day an Arizona woman in a vegetative state gave birth were in complete shock about her pregnancy as they tried to save the newborn's life.

Phoenix police released five minutes of audio Friday of a nurse calling for paramedics after the Dec. 29 birth.

The panicked nurse at the Hacienda HealthCare facility tells the 911 dispatcher several times that the baby is a complete surprise because workers had no idea the woman was pregnant.

The nurse initially says the woman is stable but the infant is not breathing and is turning blue.

Within a few minutes, the nurse says the baby is breathing and crying.

Authorities say the 29-year-old woman was the victim of a sexual assault.
