    Michael Jackson -- Cardiac Arrest

    Posted Jun 25th 2009 4:30PM by TMZ Staff
    We've just learned Michael Jackson was taken by ambulance to a hospital in Los Angeles ... and we're told it was cardiac arrest and that paramedics administered CPR in the ambulance ... and it's looking bad.

    [IMG]

    He was picked up at his home around 20 minutes ago -- we're told his mother is on the way to visit him.

    UPDATE: The 911 call came in at 12:21PM at his Holmby Hills home in L.A.

    UPDATE: A Jackson [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]family [/FONT][/FONT][FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]member[/FONT][/FONT] tells TMZ Michael is in "really bad shape" and the brothers are headed to UCLA.

    UPDATE: We just got off the phone with Joe Jackson, Michael's dad, who says "he is not doing well."

    Michael Jackson Dies


    Posted Jun 25th 2009 5:20PM by TMZ Staff
    [IMG]We've just learned Michael Jackson has died. He was 50.

    Michael suffered a cardiac arrest earlier this afternoon at his Holmby Hills home and paramedics were unable to revive him. We're told when paramedics arrived Jackson had no pulse and they never got a pulse back.

    A source tells us Jackson was dead when paramedics arrived.

    LaToya ran in the hospital sobbing, after Jackson was pronounced dead.

    Michael is survived by three children: Michael Joseph Jackson, Jr., Paris Michael Katherine Jackson and Prince "Blanket" Michael Jackson II.

    Jackson had 13 number one hits during his solo career.

    No other confirmation. I agree TMZ is a bit iffy, but they probably have contacts in L.A. Hospitals for just such an occassion.

    The TMZ website is tough to get into, but when I finally did, I did see a report that unambiguously stated he had died.

    Foxnews just said that they only know that he was taken to the hospital with a heart attack. They are waiting for word from AP.

    They're saying cardiac arrest and I have to be honest with you... until about 60 minutes ago, I always thought "cardiac arrest" and "heart attack" were the same thing. But it turns out cardiac arrest is much worse than a heart attack.

    I know he is a controversial figure, to say the least, but the man's talent cannot be debated.

    FWIW, Fox just said they had an email from Elizabeth Taylors rep who said he was fine.

    Though Adam Housley just said something weird...."First Farrah and now Michael." Maybe he knows something but can't report it.

    LA Times: Michael Jackson hospitalized

    6 mins ago
    LOS ANGELES – Michael Jackson has been rushed to the hospital, a fire department official told the Los Angeles Times. Capt. Steve Ruda said Thursday that Jackson was not breathing when Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics responded to a call at his Los Angeles home about 12:30 p.m. The paramedics performed CPR and took him to UCLA Medical Center, Ruda told the newspaper.

    L. Londell McMillan, a lawyer for Jackson, did not have any information. Messages left for other Jackson associates were not immediately returned.

    The hospitalization was first reported by the Web site TMZ.

    The emergency entrance at the UCLA Medical Center, which is near Jackson's rented home, was roped off Thursday with police tape.

    News trucks were gathered, helicopters flew overhead, and orange cones were laid out to redirect traffic.

    "We have no statements as far as transporting Michael Jackson," Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Devin Gales said.

    Associated Press entertainment reporters Derrik Lang and Anthony McCartney and special correspondent Linda Deutsch in Los Angeles and music writer Nekesa Mumbi Moody in New York contributed to this story.

    I stand corrected. You are right. And yes, he was immensely talented.

    Please don't think I was trying to be a know-it-all. Like I said, until 60 minutes ago I had no idea there was any difference between cardiac arrest and a heart attack.

    This is from the LA Times.
