Felt Jackson Dead at Scene

6/26/2009 1:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson Dead at the sceneWhen EMTs arrived at Michael Jackson's home yesterday, the medics wanted to pronounce him dead on the scene -- but Michael's personal doctor refused to let them "call it" -- this according to sources close to the situation.

When EMTs arrived there was evidence someone had been performing CPR on Michael for "quite some time." There was evidence of Lidocaine -- an old-school drug that can be used to treat disturbances in the heart's rhythm. Medics took over performing CPR but determined Jackson was lifeless -- and wanted to call the coroner to pick up the body.

We're told Jackson was flat-lined when EMTs arrived.

But our sources say M.J.'s doc demanded EMTs continue performing CPR anyway, and demanded that they take Michael to the hospital.

Once they arrived at UCLA, we're told Jackson's doc continued to personally administer CPR -- even though it was clear Jackson was already gone.

Of course he wanted them to continue CPR. That way he's pronounced dead at the hospital and the doctor can get a chance to talk to his attorney and figure out how to cover the murder up. The doctor was already there? His "personal" doctor? And he had been given a shot of narcotics briefly before this happened? It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure it out.

I am a doctor. No doctor in their right mind would be living with a patient and giving them drugs. This doctor was clearly addicted also and/or mentally ill. The first thing he should have done was call 911. If he was giving Michael drugs at least he should have had the minimum sense to have Narcan around. Giving someone lidocaine is a Pulp Fiction move that is totally insane. It gives doctors a bad time. As if we didn't already have it if after Anna Nicole.

I have been a health care provider for 19 years and have worked critical care for almost that whole time. I smell some medical malpractice. The fact that his private Dr was there preforming CPR, before EMT's, smells fishy. First of all the Dr should have known CPR is done on a hard surface. I think something was given to him by "someone" and that made him go into respiratory arrest followed by cardiac arrest. Yesterday when this was announced I thought it would be drug related. especially since he had a physical two weeks ago and supposedly was said to be in good physical condition.

114 - A 'paramedic' is simply a fancy name for EMT-Advanced. There are three levels. EMT-Basic, EMT-Intermediate, and EMT-Advanced. So technically, a paramedic IS an EMT.

Do you also get this moody when you hear someone call a highway patrolman 'officer' instead of 'trooper'?

If there was lidocaine and demerol there why did the doctor not have something simple like an AED?

Michael had the drug administered to him and collapsed shortly after, alone. Some time later he was discovered by a member of staff who alerted the his personal doctor. He then administered CPR while the staff member called 911 but by then it was all too late.

The doctor should be held accontable for his part in enabling Michael and killing him.

if the Doc was doing all that CPR then he knew exactly what happend to Michael Jackson. The Doc seems guilty of something. maybe it was the drug that he gave Michael actrually killed him!!!!!!!!!!!

Listen everyone....... God was ready for him and everyone dies when it's their time, even if the doctor did something wrong, i still believe it was his time and all we should do is celebrate so we never forget how great he was. His legacy will live on for many many many generations to come, if we just celebrate, tell and show our kids and grandkids what a brilliant, magnificent human being he was.
