Okay, so it is a bit off topic. It is being alleged that Michael Jackson's doctor, one Conrad Murray, a cardiologist, was with jacko when he collapsed.
The Dr. then performed CPR until Whacko was declared dead.
The bizarre thing is that the Dr. then went walkabout and remains AWOL, something akin to what our taxi drivers do at the scene of an accident. The LAPD have also towed Dr. Murray's vehicle, in search of potential evidence.
There is strong speculation that Jacko received an overdose of Demerol, a painkiller, that allegedly was administered by Dr. Murray, which would explain why he was coincidently in attendance.
Dr Daniel Simon, chief of cardiology at University Hospitals Case Medical Centre in Cleveland, said if Jackson had been injected with too much Demerol, it might have caused him to stop breathing. "The most likely scenario with Demerol would be that it caused a respiratory arrest because it takes away the drive to (breathe]," Dr Simon said. He added that low blood oxygen can trigger a deadly heart rhythm known as ventricular fibrillation, in which the heart quivers but does not circulate blood. "Without CPR and a defibrillator, you have no chance," Dr Simon said.
Dr. Murray had recently closed his practice and was living with Michael, as his personal physician.
We wait and we watch, but I suspect old Dr. Murray is in for a grilling. Perhaps Berkowitz instead of Baloi, may be in order.
Seems pretty cut & dry... a doctor that over-prescribed and overdosed medication and fought, not only to save Michael Jackson’s life, but to save his own ass as well. I've got to believe, had he immediately called paramedics, Mr. Jackson's life could have been saved. Licensed celebrity drug pushers... Dr. George Nichopoulos (Presley), Dr. Khristine Eroshevich (Anna Nicole Smith) and this hack, were all fame whores who should be held accountable for their roles in the deaths of their most famous clients. If this douche bag cared about his patient and his patient's loved ones, he wouldn't be hiding out like the criminal he is. Also, it's a shame that these artists egos, coupled with the immense influence they have on their "subjects", keep them from getting much needed help in treating their addictions and re-claiming their health & their lives. Simply put... another tragic end, to a life that meant so much, to so many. Rest in peace Michael. Fly away, far, far away, from this troubled world!!!! May God bless you & yours.....
