Posted: Updated:

MIRAMAR, Fla. (WSVN) -- Police have released the 911 call made by a frantic mother whose 3-year-old daughter accidentally shot herself last week.

In that call, made Wednesday, the mother tells the operator that her daughter had shot herself and pleads for her to send help.

Dispatcher: "911, what's your emergency?"

Mother: "Please, please come to my house! My daughter shot herself! Please, please hurry up! Please!

Dispatcher: "OK, what happened?"

Mother: "She shot herself in the stomach!"

Dispatcher: "Ma'am, I already have the call and ready for dispatch. I need you to stay on the phone with me, OK?"

Mother: "Oh my God! Please hurry up! Please hurry up! She's fainting!"

Miramar Police later determined that this was, in fact, an accident. Investigators said the child got a hold of an unsecured gun from inside the home, near Southwest 132nd Way and 41st Street.

She was rushed to Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital and is currently in stable condition.

No charges will be filed.
