The audio of the 911 call placed from Michael Jackson's Los Angeles home in the moments after the superstar reportedly suffered a cardiac arrest is currently streaming on TMZ. The tape reveals that Jackson was unresponsive and not breathing before paramedics were ever called to the scene. "He's not breathing, we're trying to pump him," the unspecified caller told the operator, adding that Jackson was unconscious. The caller also tells the operator that Jackson's personal physician — identified as Dr. Conrad Murray, who is being sought by the cops — was with Jackson at the time, however Jackson was "not responding to the CPR or anything." While the caller told the paramedics a 50-year-old man was unresponsive, he never mentioned the name "Michael Jackson."
The caller said Jackson was lying on the bed, but the paramedic on the line told the caller to put him on the floor. Later, the caller said Jackson was "slumped in a chair." When asked if anyone witnessed what happened, the caller responded, "Only the doctor was here." The next question, whether the doctor witnessed what happened, went unanswered as the caller pleaded for the paramedics to arrive quickly. As Rock Daily reported yesterday, paramedics spent over an hour trying to resuscitate Jackson at the UCLA Medical Center, but Jackson's time of death was declared at 2:26PM PT.
