Dr. Conrad Murray

to the Rescue --

The Video

5/21/2010 4:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A bunch of you thought the whole mid-air medical emergency with Dr. Conrad Murray and a passenger was a publicity stunt.  Well, we just got video that suggests it was the real deal.

052110-dr-murray-video-credit
Remember our story -- that the doc on trial for allegedly killing Michael Jackson was on a US Air flight when a female passenger passed out with a dangerously low pulse.

The photo below was taken during the emergency, and the video -- which shows the woman being wheeled off the plane with Dr. Murray in tow -- was shot after the plane made an emergency landing.


The passenger who shot the video tells TMZ after the woman passed out the flight attendants tried in vain to revive her ... and that's when one of them got on the P.A. and asked if a doctor was on board.

The passenger says Dr. Murray walked over to the woman -- and several flight attendants thought he was just a regular passenger trying to make his way to the bathroom. We're told the flight attendants asked Murray to return to his seat ... and that's when he revealed he was an MD. 

We're told Dr. Murray elevated the woman's feet and found a weak pulse.  He asked the passenger who shot the video to help him move the woman to the front of the plane, and that's where Murray inserted an IV (apparently standard issue for the flight crew) and the woman began responding.

The woman in distress -- Sharon Ross -- told TMZ when she came to, Dr. Murray said, "You probably know me ... I was Michael Jackson's doctor."

Here you go tmz, you needed a story for the weekend to keep the hits going and you got it. I can not for the life of me believe that the flight attendants did not know who he was. He has just been on tv for the last 11 months as the doctor who is charged with killing Michael Jackson. They must have been living under a rock or it is just tmz's way to twist the story to get the fans pissed off. I really just wonder what else are we going to see in the next 3 weeks before the hearing is here. No matter what the outcome is he will always be labeled as the man who killed Michael Jackson.



RIP MJ. you are truly missed and will never be forgotten

A 'passenger video' of a set up 'rescue' by Dr Murray would no doubt be arranged in advance. This proves nothing.
All it does is to benefit Murray and his legal team in their bid to generate positive PR. It doesn't matter how you look at it, Murray broke the law and deserves to do time.

Hi how are you?
Have you heard that Prince and Paris were on the internet and discovered the gay rumors?

The mere existence of this video does not prove the event was real or not. And seriously someone needs to learn how to shoot videos better, the quality is awful.

Why would the guy actually want to admit that he was Michael Jackson's doctor? Dude is totally strange.



Like "Yes. I was the doctor that saw Michael Jackson draw his last breath!" It's like saying to someone you were the captain of the Titanic.

I don't know how this can get more obvious - this is so clearly a set up scenario! Funny how Murray asked the person Shooting The Video to help him more the woman!!! Pul-eeez! Must make sure it's being recorded lol. The attendants couldn't help move the woman - noooo!
It had to be the person with the video - blegh!
If it had been a white woman, he would not have had the chance to stick an I.V. in her arm.
Do some investigation and I'm sure you'll find the this woman just "happens" to be related to one of his patients, or is a client of one of his lawyers', or some how connected. F
Follow the money - who paid for this woman's plane ticket? Where was she flying from and where was she flying to?
This whole thing ST*NKS!!!

you people should be happy that he saved a womans life,,,that just proves he did nothing wrong with MJ other than possibly made a mistake,,,,It is possible that Mj woke up and self administered the drugs on himself while murry was out of the room so he will be found not guilty and be hailed as a hero for saving this ladies life..he is a doctor and thats what doctors do...save lives

This site rates physicians. Murrays 'marks' don't look too good. Michael Jackson sure didn't check his 'employees' out very well:( Then again, considering the service he was looking for, probably makes for some uncomfortable interviews with most legitimate, ethical physicians who would have told him he was absolutely crazy! Oh, Michael(sigh)....WTH were you thinking???

So, we don't see the rescue itself, but it's easily explained if the passenger filming did not know who Conrad was when the whole thing started but over heard his announcing to the woman he was Michael Jackson's doctor & thought oh hell I'ma get this on my phone! That is completely plausible in my opinion.
K, but how'd TMZ get this video? Where is that IV? I don't see anything in her arm as she'd wheeled by.
