People vs. Dr. Conrad Murray

Paramedic Testifies

We Could Have Saved MJ

9/30/2011 10:58 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Richard Senneff -- Firefighter/Paramedic #1 Testifies
Updated 9/30/11 at 8:45AM



One of the paramedics who rushed to save Michael Jackson's life at 100 N. Carolwood Drive just testified ... if Murray had called 911 immediately, Michael Jackson's life might have been saved.

Richard Senneff said Murray told him he called 911 the second he realized MJ was in distress, when in fact there was an approximate 20-minute delay.

According to Senneff, had Murray called earlier there was a good chance EMTs could have restarted Michael's heart.

Senneff also claimed Murray never mentioned Propofol while he was on the scene -- in fact, Senneff said, Murray patently denied MJ was on any medication whatsoever. Eventually, Murray claimed he had given MJ a sedative, Lorazepam.

Senneff said MJ was already dead when he arrived at the scene -- but they tried to revive him for 47 minutes to no avail. He said Murray refused to let them declare a time of death.

When he returned from the ambulance to pick up his equipment, Senneff said he saw Murray picking up "items" off the floor.

This paramedic contradicted just about everything the bodyguard "I just want to tell the truth" Alvarez testified to.
Alvarez said he took the IV bag off the stand. Paramedic said it was still hanging there. Alvarez said they put MJ on the floor before the paramedics got there. Paramedic said they were in the process of putting MJ on the floor.
Alvarez said Murray pulled the IV tubing out of MJ's leg before the paramedics got there. Paramedic said the IV was still in MJ's leg. Alvarez said Murray collected the vials before paramedics got there. Paramedic said vials were clearly visable to him on the table. Hmmm who do you believe the bodyguard with ties to the Jackson family or the paramedic... ? Seems to me the broke bodyguard has more to gain by saying what the Jackson family and the prosecution want him to say then anything the paramedic has to gain by lying.

Prosecutors tried to do damage control? Wouldn't this be good for the prosecutors and the bad for the defense, the extra two minutes delay?

Do your own research, see hear and listen and you will know the truth. Don't believe anything media tells you, and most important don't believe anything tabloids write!

If you do your own research and really look into things with an open mind, you will see the truth!

What up all you emotionally illiterate, Nancy Disgrace following, irrational, rode wet, mental midgets? FYI, MJ was a drug addicted pedophile who suffered from an identity crisis and AIDS, and he took it upon himself to OD!MJ really should have been prescribed medical marijuana, having AIDS and all...... Propofol was OVERKILL, no pun intended.......

On the other hand, the honorable Dr. Murray is a good man who did the world & MJ a favor since he was wasting away as it was.

Just imagine if any other average Joe had little boys over to his house for sleep overs in his bed and at the entrance of the room there were cameras to alert this average Joe of intruders.
You have to be one emotional douchebag or douchebagette to think his sleep overs were "innocent"!!

Paramedic god, when GOD wants someone, he will take them even if you think you can save them. It was his time.

God did not want Michael Jackson that day. God would never seperate a father from his three children. God is not cruel. The singer was killed. It was a homicide. Not suicide. Somebody got to pay for killing Michael Jackson.

What Richard Senneff, the paramedic, said was that IF Michael had had a cardiac arrest, then the EMTS could have restarted his heart if they were called promptly.

The thing is, MJ almost certainly died of respiratory failure, not cardiac arrest. And, Murray was probably out the room for around 40 minutes (the amount of time he was on the phone), not the one or two minutes Murray claimed he was gone. So, MJ may have stopped breating 30 minutes or more before Murray realized anything was wrong, and it was probably too late for MJ to be saved by the time Murray noticed something wrong.

Bottom line: Murray should have called 911 right away, but it was probably already too late by the time he saw MJ was in trouble.

There is conflicting testimony with the security guard and the paramedic. The security guard said they started lifting Michael off the bed and onto the floor when he was still on the phone with 911. The medic says when he got there (7 minutes later) Michael was on the bed and they were moving the body to the floor. Whats up with that? The defense will be all over this inconsistency.

Murray gave MJ Propofol, left him there unattended without the proper equipment such as respirator or defibrillator and came back and panicked when MJ was unresponsive. Tried to revive him which included giving him CPR on a bed and while MJ is DYING, he finally decides to call 911. Michael Jackson was already dead, didn't have a chance.

..........................................................
It is apparent you know nothing about God. Since He is the creator, He can do as He please and not answer to anyone about it. God had bears kill children because they laughed at a man's bald head. We consider that cruel, but we are ants under the Almighty. Do you think MJJ's children are the only ones who have lost a Father? I will take this no further because it is evident you are youthful and bitter about the situation in the Murray, Jackson case. SMH
