Michael Jackson CPR Mystery Unfolds

6/27/2009 11:37 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael JacksonOne question investigators will have for Michael Jackson's personal physician: Did he botch early CPR efforts on the King of Pop?

On the 911 tape obtained by TMZ, one of Jackson's staffers tells the dispatcher that Jackson is "on the bed" and that a "doctor is here." The doctor is Dr. Conrad Murray.

Several EMTs tell us it's odd that a veteran cardiologist like Murray would attempt CPR while Jackson was on a bed.

Common CPR practices call for the patient to be on a hard surface -- because it is difficult to compress the chest on a soft surface. The 911 operator told the staffer to "get him on the floor."

Cops have yet to officially interview Dr. Murray, but this will almost certainly come up.

That doctor is at fault, regardless! At that point, he was trying to save his own ass by saving Michael.

I have a feeling that in the end, it will be determined that he overdosed on Demerol!

We will never ever know what happened... I pray for peace for his children. I really liked Michael Jackson and my sorrow today is that he did not have a normal life, ever.

Peace and blessings to the 3 children. Michael, rest now in peace.

Sounds like something fishy was going on after MJ was in distress. CPR 101 dictates a victim be placed on a hard surface, like a floor.

And why has Dr. Murray taken the high road and can't be found? My opinion, he screwed up big time.

It is common practice but since Michael was so small framed being on the bed might not have mattered.
