Maggie and Paul Murdaugh’s voices are being heard publicly for the first time since their brutal murders last summer. South Carolina state police on Tuesday released the 911 call, from 2018, of Maggie reporting that her family’s housekeeper had fallen and was badly hurt.

“My housekeeper has fallen and her head is bleeding and I can’t get her up,” said a voice identified on the Feb. 2, 2018, call log as Maggie, who was then 49.

A male voice on the call was identified by an attorney representing the Satterfield family as Maggie’s son Paul, then 18.

Housekeeper Gloria Satterfield, 57, died on Feb. 26, 2018 after what was described as a slip and fall accident at the Murdaugh hunting lodge Moselle — the same home where Maggie and were found fatally shot on June 7, 2021.

Satterfield had worked for the Murdaughs for more than 20 years. She died before she was able to recount what had happened, and no autopsy was ever conducted, according to Hampton County Coroner Angela Topper, who told authorities that the death was suspicious.

Her death has spawned both criminal and civil investigations in the wake of the Murdaughs’ double homicide.

On the call, Maggie says Gloria had fallen while climbing up a flight of eight brick steps and was lying at the bottom, bleeding from her head and barely conscious but “mumbling.”

There was no explanation of how or why Satterfield fell during the six-minute conversation between the Murdaughs and the dispatcher.

The 911 call eerily presaged the one Alex Murdaugh made to police in June after he said he found the dead bodies of his wife, Maggie, and son Paul near the kennels at their rural estate near Islandton, SC.

At one point during the Satterfield emergency call Maggie hands the phone to Paul. The dispatcher then asks him what kind of pain Satterfield is in.

“Ma’am, she can’t talk … She’s cracked her head and there’s blood on the concrete and she’s bleeding out of her left ear,” Paul says.

He adds he was trying to hold Satterfield up when “she told me to turn her loose … and she fell back over.”

Both Maggie and Paul sound calm and composed on the call though both become irritated by the dispatcher’s detailed questions about Satterfield’s condition.

Columbia attorney Eric Bland represents the Satterfield family. He helped them recover more $4.3 million that Alex Murdaugh allegedly pilfered a complicated scheme to sue himself to collect on personal liability insurance.

Murdaugh’s lawyer Dick Harpootlian told The Post Tuesday from Columbia, SC, that his legal team had not listened to the call and did not expect to, saying it was not germane to their defense of Alex Murdaugh.

Bland told The Post Tuesday that the story Paul and Maggie told was similar to what Alex has said. “Nothing moved the needle here,” he said. “They both were very impatient with the dispatcher but that may have been because ti was such an emergency.”

Murdaugh remains detained in the Richland County detention center facing criminal charges involving his alleged theft of insurance settlement money from Satterfield’s family, as well as other financial crime allegations.

Alex made yet another now notorious 911 call on Sept. 4, 2021, to report he himself had been shot in the head by an unknown assailant. It was later alleged that that Alex had arranged for a hitman to kill him as part of a life insurance scheme to collect $10 million for his and Maggie’s surviving son, Buster.
