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.

I have heard enough of people horrible thing about him.
And yes, a regular person even knows that you must perform CPR on hard ground, its the only way to perform it. So I would blame it all on the doc because 1, he shouldn't of given Michael his "Milk" other wise he would have survived, and 2, if he wasn't on the phone too much he would have actually saved him in time and be able to call hospital to go get an ambulance there in time. No offense to the doc, but he should have done what he was paid to do, even though some people think Michael died for the better, you all are wrong. Michael was one of the best people in the world, and the press just made up stories about him so they would stil have a job.

I love Michael, and he will be in my heart forever.

He was meant to be a professional, he was at fault no doubt in my mind. He should have placed MJ onto the floor then if the bed was no good to do CPR. He didn't, now the world has lost a musical genuis. How do u sleep at night Dr. Murray. Karma will fix your sorry arse...Love u today, tomorrow and forever Michael xxxxxxxxx
