Ohio girl was fatally shot by her father after he thought she was an intruder breaking into their home, according to a 911 call obtained by NBC News.

The girl, Janae Hairston, died Wednesday at a Columbus hospital about an hour after being shot in the garage of her parents’ home on Piper Bend Drive.

In the 8-minute 911 call, Hairston’s mother tells a dispatcher that her husband accidentally shot their daughter. The hysterical mother begs for an ambulance as a man in the background repeatedly says, “breathe, baby.”

“My husband made a mistake and shot her because he thought she was an intruder,” the mother says. “She was in our garage and my husband just didn’t know what was going on. Oh my God.”

The mother says she thinks the teen was shot in the chest. Both parents can be heard asking what the girl was doing in the garage.

According to District Attorney Ernie Lee, the teen suffered a life-threatening injury Monday afternoon and was taken to a medical center. The boy was still in critical condition as of Wednesday, the Onslow County Sheriff’s Office said.

The unidentified officer works for the Jacksonville Police Department and is on administrative leave.
