In a horrible 911 call, a worker at pop singer Michael Jackson's house says, "He's not breathing!" and begs the operator to send an ambulance right away. "We have a gentleman here who needs help," says the unidentified male caller, according to a tape released Friday by the Los Angeles California Fire Department. Without giving Jackson's name, the caller says there is a 50-year-old in his bed who is being given CPR by his personal physician. "He's pumping his chest and he's not responding to anything," the caller says. The operator then advises the caller to move Jackson to the floor for CPR. But when the operator hears there's a doctor on the premises, backs off. "We're on our way there. If your guy is doing CPR instructed by a doctor, he has a higher authority than me," the operator says. The operator then asks: "Did anybody witness what happened?" "No, just the doctor, sir. The doctor's been the only one here," says the caller. "Okay, did the doctor see what happened?" The caller can be heard talking to somebody else: "Doctor, did you see what happened?" A muffled voice can be heard in the background, followed by the caller coming back on the line, his voice even more urgent: "Sir, if you could please…" "We're on our way," the operator says, interrupting. "I'm just passing these questions on to our paramedics." After paramedics arrived within minutes, they attempted to revive Jackson and then transported him to UCLA Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

Thanks for keeping this up to date, James.

I sure hope the doctor has a whole lot of malpractice insurance! Looks to me like a doctor did not get is patient the care the patient needed. Kind of reminds me of ANS. Doctor wanted to play God at the expense of the patient.

MJ had 50 concerts sold out! It was his opportunity to begin to dig himself out of debt. Someone is going to have to reimburse the concert goers...
