There will be a press conference shortly from the hospital in Hollywood, Florida. We will update this space as updates occur.
Update: During the press conference it was revealed that Anna Nicole had been in Florida since Monday. She was staying at the hotel with Howard K. Stern. Anna Nicole had a nurse in her hotel room and the nurse is the one who called 911 at 1:38 pm. At 1:45 pm her bodyguard attempted CPR. Paramedics arrived and failed to revive her. She was taken to the hospital where she was pronounced dead at 2:49 pm.
It's not clear why Anna had a nurse in her room, but there have been reports that Anna had a fever last night and the nurse may have been there for that reason. Anna's 5-month-old baby, Dannielynn, is reportedly in the Bahamas under the care of a family friend.
