Although Michael Jackson was rushed to the hospital on Thursday, June 25, implying the pop star was perhaps still alive at that point, EMT workers are claiming he was not.
When EMTs arrived at Michael Jackson’s home yesterday, the medics wanted to pronounce him dead on the scene — but Michael’s personal doctor refused to let them “call it” — this according to sources close to the situation.
When EMTs arrived there was evidence someone had been performing CPR on Michael for “quite some time.” There was evidence of Lidocaine — an old-school drug that can be used to treat disturbances in the heart’s rhythm. Medics took over performing CPR but determined Jackson was lifeless — and wanted to call the coroner to pick up the body.
We’re told Jackson was flat-lined when EMTs arrived.
But our sources say M.J.’s doc demanded EMTs continue performing CPR anyway, and demanded that they take Michael to the hospital.
Once they arrived at UCLA, we’re told Jackson’s doc continued to personally administer CPR — even though it was clear Jackson was already gone.
Jackson’s doctor, Dr. Conrad Robert Murray, was missing earlier Friday, but is now allegedly in Los Angeles to speak with law enforcement about what happened. It’s unclear if the doctor injected his patient with (possibly Demerol) what could have been too much medication, leading to the singer’s death.
I hope the Jackson family is keeping the children away from the TV and newspapers – they should obviously know what happened to their dad, but not until all the facts are known. The children are currently being cared for by Jackson family members and their nanny, and are “doing fine.”
