Chron.com: Octuplets mother Nadya Suleman frantically called the police, fearing for the safety of her children because the paparazzi were trying to break down her garage door Tuesday night, according to a 911 tape released Wednesday.
"I need help and this is not safe for any of the kids," Suleman says on the tape of the La Habra (Calif.) Police Department. "Please hurry."
Suleman, who has become an internationally famous single mother of 14, brought two of her octuplets home from the hospital late Tuesday as reporters, photographers and onlookers swarmed the SUV that she was in with her babies. Photographers jumped on top of the vehicle and some of them became trapped inside the garage, which had a bent door.
Her older children arrived earlier in the evening. Six of the octuplets remain in the hospital.
On the 53-second call at 10:28 p.m. PDT, Suleman identifies herself to a La Habra police dispatcher .
"They are trying to break down the garage door. We pulled in and they are swarming the whole area," Suleman said. She said people had come onto the property, but some got pushed out.
After police arrived, officers estimated that they had to clear out about 250 people from the area, said Cindy Knapp, La Habra Police Department spokeswoman.
Suleman moved into a four-bedroom house at the end of a tiny cul-de-sac off of a main thoroughfare.
Police found a damaged garage door at the house, but Suleman declined to file a police report about the damage, Knapp said. No arrests were made.
