Michael Jackson Doc

in Mid-Air Emergency

5/16/2010 4:37 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Dr. Conrad Murray may have saved a life this morning ... 30,000 feet above the ground.

0515-conrad-murray-wm-tmz-ex-credit
Sources tell TMZ Murray was on a US Air flight from Houston to Phoenix when a flight attendant came over the loudspeaker and asked if there was a doctor on board.

Turns out a passenger fainted and could not be revived. We're told Murray jumped out of his seat, evaluated the female passenger (who was in her 20s and traveling with a baby), and quickly noticed she had a "very weak pulse."

Somehow -- don't ask us -- Murray inserted an IV and was able to stabilize the passenger until the plane made an emergency landing in Albuquerque.

The passenger was taken for further treatment. Her condition is not known.

I can only imagine how crazy you MJ fans would have gotten if the story came out that this woman had a medical emergency and Dr. Murray didn't step up to help and she died. You'd all once again blame Dr. Murray for her death.
When it comes to all you so called Michael Jackson fans there's no winning is there. Your all just so right and so convinced that this doctor is satan.
The only thing this doctor is guilty of (at this point)is his poor judgement in taking on a patient who is a known drug addict and giving him the desired drugs. Michael Jackson killed himself, period end of story.
I laugh when I read all the comments here. Seriously ? Are you all so devastated by his death that you need medical treatment for depression, you've crawled into bed for the past year and can't get out, your life is forever changed because of his death ? Oh god help all of you !

Doesn't alter the fact that he's a murderer. Why was he travelling with IVs anyway? Why hasn't his licence been revoked? Why wasn't the woman given smelling salts? What is his love affair with IV lines all about? He seems to be more than just a tad obsessed with IV lines. Conny the Killer Quack aka Murray the Murdering Medic is still exactly that.....a KILLER. May he rot in hell.

152. To sara: What plane you know carry IV equipment? You can't have a bottle of water on a plane now a days so how can they have IV equipment. I am a nurse and I know they are not putting IV equipment in first aid kits.

Yeah, you're a nurse and I am the Medical Director at UCLA Medical Center! For your information, DUMBA$$, it is standard nowadays for airlines to carry a medical emergency kit. This is much more than a first aid kit - they have defibrillators, there is equipment with which to help deliver babies, scissors, bandages, tape, IV lines, normal saline (IV fluid to you, Ms. Nurse), a variety of drugs only a medical professional can administer, oxygen - need I go on?



You are not only an idiot, you are a liar, too. Call the airline and ask if you don't believe me. Rabid fanatical moron fan.

I wonder how he can afford such a good PR company to come up with something like this, but can't pay his child support? Questions we may never have answers to...

wow



He made a huge mistake in judgment with Michael. As another physician, I find it hard to understand and I do feel that what he did to Michael constitutes manslaughter.



However, he is not the devil incarnate. He is a physician and he did know what to do for this woman. These things happen all the time. It was reported on because he is in the news. That's all. The conspiracy theories and ridiculous accusations are not based in reality.

Has to be a publicity stunt because if I woke up with DR. Murray standing over me and an I.V. I would sream loud enough for the control tower to hear me.

@bryan It amazes me that people go "Conrad Murray is innocent until proven guilty" when people still go around insisting that Michael Jackson abused children even though he was declared innocent of all the charges against him. We’re supposed to give someone accused of gross medical negligence dignity because he hasn't been tried in court and we don't know the facts...why is it okay to bash Michael Jackson who has been investigated by various legal agencies, but was never found to have any guilt of or leanings towards pedophilia? If people don't understand Michael Jackson as a person cool, but people running around calling him an addict and all this other stuff when there's no proof of it is f*cked up. Murray let a person die under his care and then tried to cover it up...it don't matter which way you spin it...he still has guilt to answer to and played a part in someone’s death.

Juries never find defendants innocent. They cannot. Not only is it not their job, it is not within their power. They can only find them "not guilty."

I can see the next news headline now: Dr. Murray joins the hunt for Osama bin Laden. Offers free medical care to the Pope. The American news media has been completely compromised and has no credibility left. This story is fake.
