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.

well isn't that just convenient



Murray needs to pay! i couldnt careless if he saved this person's life, it still doesnt change what he did to Michael. This shouldnt change or prove anything to the court. If he was so damn caring and such an outstanding doctor how come he didnt take care of MJ?

I can't believe some of you think this was a stunt or a set-up. Medical emergencies can and do happen on aircraft all the time. Most if not all airlines have an emergency medical kit that is much more sophisticated than just a first aid kit; they are designed for use by doctors, nurses, paramedics who might be on board. They also have debrillators.



I think this just happened and Dr. Murray happened to be there. Thank God he was able to help that woman and she did not die. I know some of you think Murray is a murderer, and I want to see justice done for his negligent care of Michael, but I think that was a tragic accident waiting to happen, both through his getting too "comfortable" with the daily propofol scenario and Michael's own insistence that he give it to him. I guess you could say Michael got what he paid for. Sleep. He just didn't realize it would be eternal.



I am no fan of Murray's but to suggest this is a PR stunt? There you go again - rabid fanatical moron fans. You make me shake my head in amazement at the levels of stupidity you are willing to stoop to.

There is no evidence that this was a publicity stunt. It's not unusual for passengers to take ill on a flight and for the flight attendants to ask if there is a doctor on board. This has probably happened to Dr. Murray (or any other doctor) more than once. It is because of his notoriety that it was even reported to the media. Also, doctors often carry a doctor's kit with them wherever they go, which includes an IV with saline solution. Haven't you ever heard of the proverbial black bag? Planes carry a large number of first aid supplies as well.

I cannot believe this. This is really getting rediculous. I love you Michael. "It's All For Love. L.O.V.E."

It is amazing how "some" people do not know the laws of their own country.



1. Innocent until proven guilty



It is equally amazing how "some" people believe everything that they read & hear in the media (esp on tmz - offense intended)



Calling Dr. Murry a murderer and Michael Jackson anything but what he truly is an innocent blessed and peaceful human being!



Oh, BTW Michael is 97% alive... but I believe he's more than that -like 107% alive!



Also, even though TMZ is printing a positive article about a good deed done by Dr. Murray everyone is quick to spread hate again. Where is the love? He very well might have saved a young mother's life... Thank you Dr. Murray and for the judge that didn't take his license to practice medicine away - - smart judge I'd say!



Wake up America... think for yourselves - - use the brains that God gave you.... don't believe sensational lies designed to sell papers and get ratings... you are the dummies... you are the victims and you are such easy marks! Love to all always!

Oh, come on TMZ. Do some fact checking. Why all the Dr. Murray has fans and is now a hero stories right before the hearing. How much are THEY paying you to plant these stories. Nice job picking up Sony as an advertiser. Love their new slogan: Make.Believe



Just what is that they are trying to make us believe????



IMHO,
