911 Call Released In Marie Osmond's Son's Death
The 911 call has been released in the death of Marie Osmond’s son, Michael Bryan, who committed suicide on February 26.
In the call, placed by a female who lived in the apartment building from which Bryan jumpedto to his death in downtown Los Angeles, the woman tells the 911 dispatcher she witnessed the fall from the seventh floor of the 15-floor building.
“I saw someone come down from the roof and I looked down, and they’re on the street,” the woman says on the call. “I saw them flying from the roof.”
When the 911 dispatcher asks if the person – who was later identified as Bryan – fell from the roof, the emotional and shaken woman says, “I don’t know if they fell [or] if they jumped.”
Bryan, who was 18 at the time of his death, was laid to rest on Monday in Provo, Utah, in front of about 450 friends and family members.

During the funeral services, his mother Marie sung a hymn, along with her brother Donny Osmond and five of their siblings, according to the Associated Press.
In November 2007, Access Hollywood reported that Bryan had entered rehab, dealing with depression.
“My son Michael is an amazing young man,” Marie said, in a statement through her rep, at the time. “(He has) shown through his courage in facing his issues. As his mother, I couldn’t be more proud of him. The press and public have always been kind and gracious in the past and I know they will continue to respect our privacy during this time.”
Bryan was one of five children adopted by Marie Osmond. He previously used his adoptive father’s last name, Blosil. However, court records show a judge had granted a petition for a legal name change, according to the AP.
