Corey Haim's mom desperately pressed on his chest and tried to talk her dying son back to the light during a wrenching phone call to a 911 dispatcher. "He wanted to go to the bathroom and he fell and that was it, his eyes went backwards," Haim's mom, Judy, tells the operator in the call last week shortly before her son was declared dead. As the dispatcher talks her through CPR, she cries: "Oh my God, I am alone with my son and I don't know what I'm doing."

She tells the operator: "I don't think it's helping at all. I am pressing, but he is not moving." Finally she pleads in the 10-minute call: "Please, Core, come on, honey. Core, Core, please honey, come on, baby." Los Angeles police released a tape of the call yesterday as the Lost Boys star, 38, was laid to rest in Toronto. Autopsy results have yet to be released, but his death is believed to be linked to his long-running addiction to prescription drugs, reports ABC News.
