Billy added: “I hung up the phone, I ran out and jumped on my motorcycle, David Stanley (Elvis’ step-brother) was coming in, in his car. I parked and said, ‘David take me to the hospital. Elvis… they’ve taken him there.’
“I kept thinking, ‘Maybe not, maybe it’s all just a mistake. They thought he was and he’s not.’
“But when we got to the hospital, Miss Cocke was there and she said ‘let him in.'”
Marian Cocke was a nurse at Memphis Baptist Memorial Hospital who had looked after Elvis during previous hospital stays and also at Graceland during the last two years of his life.
