New York, NY - August 18, 2008 -INSIDE EDITION has obtained the 9-1-1 phone call John Edwards' ex-mistress Rielle Hunter made just one week before the story of her affair broke.

Edwards has admitted to having an affair with the 44-year-old film producer but denies fathering a child with Hunter.

Following are excerpted quotes from this exclusive interview scheduled to broadcast on INSIDE EDITION.  Credit must be given to INSIDE EDITION.

Hunter placed the 9-1-1 call after being tailed by photographers on a Los Angeles freeway.

Hunter: "I'm being followed by the paparazzi and it's extremely dangerous. I have a small child in the car with me. I just turned around and they're still following me."

Hunter: "They almost got in two wrecks following me. They are trying to take photos of me and completely harassing me."  

Hunter: "They are trying to prove someone is the father of my baby, whose not, and they've been harassing me."

Shortly after the call Hunter was flown out of the country on a private jet to secret location, where she currently remains.

INSIDE EDITION has learned the photographer tailing her was later cited for making an illegal U-turn.
