Im gonna agree with flower #20, as scrawny looking as he appear if he truly was in full arrest my 20+ in emergency medicine would vote that he probably did not or will not survive. If that the case cant blame much of it on anyone but his own devices.

I hope he is ok. I would hope that you people that are saying bad things about this don't ever have a family member or loved one ever have that happen to you. Shame on you hateful people.

I, personally, don't like him - but I hate for anything like this to happen to someone. I sure hope he is okay.

I am not much of a Michael fan, however, jokes about something like this are disgusting. Shame on all of you who find this funny. Your values are scrambled.

I can't believe you all are making jokes about him at a time like this. Shame on you.
You don't have to like him, that's fine.

But, don't joke about someone who is in a serious condition in the hospital.

Geez. Insensitive bastards.
