Youtube star Kevin Samuels spent the last moments of his life with a nurse who desperately tried to resuscitate him when he developed chest pains and turned blue, a 911 call has revealed.
Ortensia Alcantara, 32, frantically pleaded with 911 dispatchers to send an ambulance to the Buckhead Atlanta residence, where she had spent the night before with Samuels.
“I just have to resuscitate him. Yes! [I need an ambulance] It’s Kevin-f******-Samuels,” you hear Alcantara say in the May 5 call that was received by TMZ.
‘No, [he is not awake.] He doesn’t have a set rhythm, I don’t feel it. He breathes in and out, but he doesn’t have a set rhythm.’
The distraught nurse would later tell the first responders that the self-proclaimed dating guru had fallen on top of her and turned blue after experiencing chest pain.
But before help arrived, Alcantara begged Samuels to regain consciousness and gave him CPR until an ambulance took over, trying – and failing – to save the infamous Youtuber.
YouTuber Kevin Samuels, 57, died Thursday in Atlanta after reportedly experiencing “chest pain.” Nurse Ortensia Alcantara, 32, frantically pleaded with 911 dispatchers to send an ambulance to the Buckhead Atlanta residence, where she had spent the night before with Samuels.
He was found in an apartment in Buckhead Atlanta
“Come on Kevin, you got this, just try to breathe. Come on, think of your mother. Think of your daughter,’ said the woman between the screams.
During the desperate call released Monday, Alcantara also told 911 operators she needed to go to the front desk for a defibrillator.
“I have to call the front desk to get an AED, he won’t make it. If they have one, I have to get it right away,” she says, “call the front desk so they can get me an AED now. It’s turning blue, I can’t wait any longer.’
Paramedics gave Samuels CPR, who stopped responding on the apartment floor. He was transferred to Piedmont Hospital, where he died at the age of 57.
Samuels mother, Beverly Samuels-Burch, told: NBC News she found out her son had passed away after seeing it on social media.
“That was terrible for social media to bring that out. I didn’t even know,” she told NBC News on Friday.
‘I wasn’t even notified. All I do is ask people to pray for us.” She declined to release more details about her son’s death.
The “relationship guru” was known for being controversial and often described as misogynistic and toxic. He recently got heat after calling unmarried women over 35 ‘leftovers’ and saying ‘men know there’s probably something wrong with you’
Atlanta police said Ortensia Alcantara, 32, a nurse, called 911 and reported an “injured person.” She had reportedly already asked at the front desk for a defibrillator to keep him alive until emergency services arrived and took him to Piedmont Hospital.
Samuels, who had 1.42 million YouTube subscribers and nearly as many Instagram followers, was best known for his controversial dating advice.
He claimed in a video last week that the Chinese government “previously referred to unmarried women over 27” as “leftovers” and 35 was the US “equivalent.”
“If you make it to 35 and you’re unmarried, then you’re a leftover woman,” he said in a video. “You are what’s left. Men know there’s probably something wrong with you.’
Samuels, estimated to be worth $4 million, said it was ‘meant to rent out’ [women] know where you are in the market,” he said, a metal model of a woman’s torso in the background.
He also said that “not all women can have men” and suggested that women “share them.” He angered viewers after he judged women by their appearance and dress size. He even rated singer Saweetie with an ‘adjustable six’.
“She can go from cute to beautiful,” he told Joe Budden on his podcast. Many said his dating advice was sexist and toxic, NBC News reported.
After his death, journalist Ernest Owens said: “Kevin Samuels has made a career of shamelessly disgracing black women for profit.
He encouraged the most toxic individuals to project tired and harmful stories about black women.
‘Dead or alive, what a shameful life to live. That’s all I have for that misogynist.’
Musician Jean Deaux tweeted: ‘What did Kevin Samuels die of? 56 and unmarried.’
Samuels also appeared in a Future video entitled: Healing Together with Dr. Kevin Samuels (Worst Day Official Video Trailer), which debuted on February 8. The couple discussed how much money the rapper spent on women.
He also proclaimed himself an “image consultant” and offered services exclusively to men “who want an upgrade in their appearance.” His services include shopping, grooming and helping “great guys look and feel their best,” according to his website.
Longtime friend Melanie King said he got ‘family confirmation’ about his death, The hill reported, saying his funeral could possibly be in Oklahoma City.
