LOS ANGELES - It's not quite as shocking as the videotape of Rodney King being pummeled by Los Angeles police officers swinging metal batons and jolting him with stun guns.
But the 911 tape of his fiancee calling for help after finding his body in his swimming pool is riveting stuff.
On the tape, released yesterday, Cynthia Kelley repeatedly begs authorities to hurry to King's home in Rialto, California early Sunday.
She says she threw a shovel into the pool in an effort to get King to move, but failed.
The anguished call lasts just over 5 minutes and ends with the arrival of police officers who pull King from the pool and attempt to save his life.
He was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.
At one point, Kelley describes her husband as "the guy that got beat by the police." Authorities are awaiting toxicology results and said they'll use them with an autopsy done on Monday to determine how King died.
