First responders rushed to Valerie Fairman initially thinking she might have suffered a heart attack … but once on scene there were signs of possible drug abuse.
TMZ got the dispatch call to the fire dept and EMS Wednesday night in Coatesville, PA … and the call went out as a “cardiac arrest” — but about 10 minutes later the dispatcher changes the call to a “possible DOA.”
She also says paramedics are going to need containers for needles. As we’ve reported … it appears the “16 and Pregnant” star died of an overdose. She’d battled drug addiction for many years.
