A deathbed dossier — just made public — could be the evidence prosecutors need to put Michael Jackson‘s doctor Conrady Murray behind bars.
The explosive Emergency Medical Service Report document was authored by the paramedics who raced to the bedroom where the King of Pop overdosed on June 25 last year.
The findings could be “hammer blow” to the case of Dr Murray, reports Britain’s News of the World. The doctor has been charged with involuntary manslaughter over Jacko’s death.
The bombshell evidence includes:
- Murray failed to inform paramedics that he had given the singer a dose of Propofol, the anaesthetic drug that coroners ruled killed Jackson.
- Jackson had already flat-lined (no heart activity) by the time they arrived and after two rounds of heart revival drugs failed he was declared dead at the scene.
- As senior medic there, Murray nevertheless insisted Jacko be taken to hospital and demanded a third round of drugs which also failed.
The statements appear to contradict what Murray told police and the findings of the autopsy.
The document could also be vital evidence and provide the springboard to any civil or wrongful death lawsuit launched by the Jackson clan.
A Jackson family friend reportedly told the newspaper: “This is the clearest suggestion yet that Murray misled the paramedics.
The explosive document also gives a detailed insight into the desperate battle ambulance staff put up to bring Jackson back to life.
The medics rushed past the star’s children Prince, 13, Paris, 11, and Blanket, seven, into a bedroom six minutes after bodyguard Alberto Alvarez called emergency services saying Jackson was not breathing. He had suffered a cardiac arrest.
The medics noted Murray performing CPR as Jacko lay on the floor with an intravenous (IV) drip in his left LEG.
One medic observed: “50-year-old found supine on floor, cpr in progress via PMD Murray, no visible new trauma, good lung sounds faltering, intubation, IV in place lft leg.”
In seconds, the responders had hooked him to an oximeter which measures the oxygen level in blood. Normal readings range between 93 and 100 per cent, it’s believed. Jackson’s was zero.
He also had no blood pressure, pulse or breath and his pupils were dilated.
When CPR failed to revive the singer, the medicos attempted to restart Jacko’s heart with two drugs – a combination of heart stimulant epinephrine and atropinea, a drug which keeps heart valves open.
The team also attached a bag valve mask, which is hooked up to a 7.5cm tube – and ran it down his throat into his lungs in a desperate attempt to kick-start his breathing.
At 12.58pm, the paramedics made a final desperate effort to bring Jacko back, firing 50mg of bicarbonate into the jugular vein in his neck – an injection that neutralizes harmful acids after a cardiac arrest.
When it too failed to revive him, paramedics contacted bosses at UCLA hospital with their results and were told to stop treatment.
But Murray interrupted the call, insisting Jackson could be saved.
In the ambulance, Murray assumed control of the patient, as the most senior medic. He ordered a third round of the epinephrine/atropine combination and a second shot of bicarbonate.
But the charts confirmed Jackson remained flat-lined and all vital signs were out when he arrived at the hospital at 1.13pm.
He was finally declared dead at 2.26pm.
