LOS ANGELES (AP) - A lawyer for the doctor who was with Michael
Jackson when he died says the physician found the entertainer in
his bed with a faint pulse.
Houston attorney Edward Chernoff (CHUR-noff) says in an
interview Sunday with The Associated Press that Dr. Conrad Murray
went into Jackson's bedroom and saw that he wasn't breathing.
Chernoff says Jackson was still warm and had a faint pulse and
that the doctor immediately began administering CPR.
Chernoff says Murray suggested to Jackson's family that an
autopsy be performed. He adds that the doctor did not prescribe or
give Jackson the drugs Demerol or Oxycontin. The lawyer says any
drugs Murray prescribed were given in response to a specific
complaint from the 50-year-old entertainer.
