CNN on November 1, 2022, released the details of Khloie’s phone calls via a source and published them with the approval of Khloie’s family, In the call, the girl can be heard telling the police dispatcher, "I'm in classroom 112. Please hurry. There is a lot of dead bodies." She further pleads, "Please get help. I don’t wanna die. My teacher is dead. Oh, my God." However, her pleas for help were made 30 minutes after the 18-year-old shooter got into the school, and 40 minutes before he was shot dead by law enforcement, according to CNN.

Just a few minutes later, Khloie can be heard on another call asking for assistance. At 12.12 pm, she said, "I need help … please. Have y’all captured the person?” A few minutes after that, she can be heard asking, “You want me to open the door now?” But she gets instructed by the dispatcher to stay quiet and to keep her horrified and injured friends quiet as well and to wait. She responds, “I’m telling everyone to be quiet but nobody is listening to me. I understand what to do in these situations. My dad taught me when I was a little girl. Send help.”

Khloie’s father, former Marine Ruben Torres, praised his daughter’s actions and said, "That day, the things that she did were absolutely incredible. None of them had courage that day.”

As previously reported, Col McCraw, director of the Texas Department of Public Safety, has accepted that the law enforcement officers took more than an hour to break into the classroom as children kept on calling 911, begging for help when the shooter used an AR-15-style assault rifle to kill people inside an adjoining classroom. The police waited in a corridor outside, as per the direction of Uvalde school district’s police chief Pete Arredondo.
