Recordings of the 911 calls from patrons of a Naperville bar where a teacher was stabbed to death over the weekend reveal frantic and chaotic pleas for help for the bleeding 24-year-old.
At least 10 people called 911 urging the dispatcher to send paramedics to Frankie's Blue Room after an altercation that left Shaun Wild dead and two other men with stab wounds.

In most of the recordings that were released, the dispatcher says paramedics are on the way. In some of the recordings, the dispatcher asks if the person who did the stabbing is still in the bar. It's not clear how long after the stabbing the calls were made, but callers describe people bleeding and ask for help urgently.
Here is an edited transcript of some of the recordings.

Police said Daniel Olaska, 27 of Naperville, was arrested at the scene of the murder and has been charged with first-degree murder and two counts of attempted first-degree murder. He is being held in lieu of $3 million bail.
The altercation escalated after North Central College football player Willie Hayes, who was sitting at the same table as Olaska but did not know him, teased Olaska for drinking beer out of a wineglass, according to prosecutors.
As the men stood up from the table, Wild came to help Hayes. Olaska pulled out a knife and lunged across the table and stabbed Wild in the arm and Hayes in the chest, prosecutors said. Olaska then tried to leave, and when Wild took a few steps toward him, stabbed Wild in the heart, officials said.
Rafael Castenada, an employee at the bar, raced to the scene and was also stabbed. Castenada was able to take the knife away.
Authorities said Olaska confessed to the stabbings and demonstrated for police what happened.
