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'm surpriced (or not???!!!) over how many things that can put Murray in a more positive light coincidencially (or not???!!!) seem to happen now before his trial! I'm not stupid enough to buy it, though.

Does Murray think people are THAT stupid??? Such an OBVIOUS publicity stunt. I mean, just before his court date he just HAPPENS to help someone on a plane...especially someone who just HAPPENS to "have a weak pulse", like MJ also had according to Murray....What a pathetic PR stunt!! First he goes to Forest Lawn to pose in front of MJ's crypt...then he goes to church "to pray"....and now he sooo "conveniently" helps someone on the plane...Give us some credit, Murray!!! Not all of us are as dumb as you are. We can see what you are doing, even when you yourself may think you are being soooo clever!! How pathetic!!!

oh wow, OMGoodness he recalled medical knowledge to react this time properly to SAVE a life, if it is for real bless the lady as well as her loved ones but, may he STILL pay for reacting far to little & far to late for Michael! We do not need this kind of inconsistent poor medical practice anymore, it is time for everyone to stand up & make a change in our system.



Thank you TMZ for the airline's name I truly wished to be sure & know who NOT to make ANY future bookings with.

@rini6 If you think that Murray does not have a PR team trying to help give him a more sympathetic image and make him seem less responsible in the court of public opinion for Michael Jackson's death...you must be naive. Conspiracy theories and ridiculous accusations have nothing to do with the fact that media outlets are more than willing for whatever reason to malign and tarnish Michael Jackson’s name if they profit from it and Murray’s actions towards his patient (MJ) and his patients’ family speak louder than this horse and pony show he’s been doing since the law turned their gaze on him. Murray is no devil, but he is no saint either. Who can say that this took place any way…TMZ is not exactly a reliable source. They still keep calling Klein’s crazy ass Michael’s best friend…the same “best friend” that is still currently under investigation by both legal and medical agencies. Its smoke and mirrors and people are too dense to see it or they just would rather keep being ignorant of the FACTS. For some this stuff is only gossip, but real people and real lives have been affected…this is not entertainment. Death and deceit aren’t entertaining.

@you are right I see what you're saying, but it doesn't change my overall point. The bottom line is that a jury spent months... day in and day out looking at the evidence and didn't convict him of anything because there was no proof of misconduct. The media were the ones that "convicted" him and they weren't even interested in facts of the case...just ratings.

If Michael was a drug addict and I don't believe I am qualified to say if he was or not. Someone giving a drug addict the drugs he is addicted to is called a pusher or a dealer. Last I heard that was illegal. Murray admitted to giving the drugs to Michael that the autopsy says killed him, so what more proof do we need to decide if he is guilty? I am shocked Murray has been allowed his freedom for almost a year after doing this. It must be like a knife in the heart of the Jackson family. Something is wrong with our justice system! I just hope no other family has to endure what the Jacksons have endured these many months. I don't care if he goes to prision for pushing drugs or killing Michael as long as he goes soon.

If Michael Jackson was a addict and I am not saying he was, Murray giving him the drugs he was addicted to is just wrong! You don't give a drug addict more drugs unless you are a pusher or drug dealer and last I heard that was illegal. Michael hired a doctor to look after him and make sure he was kept alive and healthy and the doctor admitted to giving Michael the drugs that the autopsy says killed him so what more do we need to know if he's guilty. The police have a signed statement. They can put him in jail for being a drug pusher or killing Michael. I don't care as long as he goes to jail soon. I am shocked that a admitted criminal is allowed to just walk the streets free like this. It makes you wonder how amny others are walking free like this. They sure didn't waste any time putting Michael Douglas's son behind bars for drugs. Why does Murray get special treatment?

If MJ accidentally took an overdose Dr. Murray was still negligent
by being in the bath room talking to his girlfriend instead of
getting out there and monitoring his patient so when MJ woke up
he could have avoided the overdose.



RIP MJ

LAW 101 - moron! A person is innocent until PROVEN guilty by a court of law. A (the) defense team doesn't carry the burden of proof, the prosecution team does. Thus, a person is INNOCENT until proven guilty...! MJ INNOCENT!

HEY MORON DO YOUR RESEARCH IN A COURT OF LAW A JURY CAN ONLY COME BACK WITH A GUILTY OR NOT GUILTY VERDICT. WHEN JUDGE ASK YOU IF YOU ARE PLEDING GUILTY OR NOT GUILTY YOU DON'T SAY I'M INNOCENT. HEY DUMBAZZ YOU TELL A JUDGE YOU ARE INNOCENT YOU WOULD LOOK LIKE A F^^KING YOU ARE FOOL DO YOUR RESEARCH.

I don't know why I feel this was staged. This still does not prove that this man should be practicing law. And they just happened to have an IV pole and the right amount of KCL or potassium to start this IV. The airport a complete crash cart. Give me a break. Why is this murder allow to roam free like this.

It is pretty much impossible that Michael gave himself an overdose of anything. The amount of medication that Murray himself admitted to giving him would have likely knocked a man his size completely out. Murray was also the one that gave Michael Proprofol (which was also in his statement to the police) and most likely lied about the dosage amounts that he gave because the amounts found in MJ’s body were wayyyyy over what he admitted to. Murray has been trying to back away from his initial statements by putting out the possibility that his patient "woke up" and injected himself. This sounds and is completely moronic…unless you believe everything you hear. The only reason why people think that Michael overdosed is because "friends" of his jumped on television looking to be experts on a situation they knew nothing about or were implicated in. Newsflash everyone that claims to be Michael’s “friend” is not his friend. The man’s autopsy tells the real truth.

Thank you Nikki,your words are so true the autopsy tells the real
truth and this is what the court or jury if need be should base their verdit on.
