JOE JACKSON PREPS WRONGFUL DEATH SUIT

description

Joe Jackson says his son Michael Jackson might be alive today if The King of Pop’s personal physician Dr. Conrad Murray had acted faster to save him last June.

Joe is preparing to file a wrongful death lawsuit against Murray seeking an unspecified amount of punitive damages, economic support, loss of companionship and loss of consortium.

In the legal documents, filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court and obtained by Britain’s News of the World, Jackson was allegedly revived for 10 minutes after being admitted to UCLA hospital on June 25.

The papers state, "At 13:21 hours or 1:21pm, the nurses and physicians at UCLA detected a weak femoral pulse and cardiac activity for Michael Jackson. At 13:22 hours he showed cardiac activity. At 13.33 he showed a weak ventricular rhythm (contracting of the lower heart chambers).

"Dr. Richelle Cooper (head of the UCLA Medical Center Emergency Department) reported that when Michael Jackson was intubated with an endotrachial tube he had good breath sounds and, ‘The initial cardiac rhythm appeared to be wide and slow in the 40s.’ At 13.52 or 1.52pm he had a pulse of 53 beats per minute…

"Despite these efforts, Michael Jackson did not regain a spontaneous pulse or heartbeat. Michael was pronounced dead at 2:26 pm."

Jackson family friend and lawyer Brian Oxman says they beleive there is enough evidence to prove Murray was responsible for the MJ’s passing. In the suit, Oxman also alleges Murray lied to the doctors treating Michael about the drugs the singer had been taking, and failed to mention the use of Propofol.
