This is terrible. An eyewitness who was there on the day Michael died says that his children walked into the bedroom where Dr. Conrad Murray was trying to revive their father.
A witness testified in court yesterday (Jan. 5) that two of Michael Jackson‘s children, Paris and Prince, walked into the bedroom where his personal physician, Dr. Conrad Murray, attempted to revive him after his fatal drug overdose. On the second day of the preliminary hearing in Los Angeles on an involuntary manslaughter charge against Dr. Murray, Alberto Alvarez, a logistics director for Michael, recalled the moment when the King of Pop’s children witnessed their father’s death.
“Paris screamed, ‘Daddy,’ and she started crying,” Alberto recalled in front of a frustrated Janet Jackson and her teary-eyed mom, Katherine Jackson — who are both awaiting the judge’s decision to move forward with a trial against 57-year-old Dr. Murray. According to Alberto, when Michael’s children appeared in the bedroom that day in June 2009, Dr. Murray shouted, “Get them out! Get them out! Don’t let them see their father like this.”
Paris was 11 and Prince was 12 when they saw their father on his back with his eyes and mouth open as Dr. Murray performed CPR. Thankfully, their younger sibling, Blanket, now 8, did not witness anything. Michael passed away at age 50 in the hospital later that day after an apparent cardiac arrest. We wish his kids never had to witness any of that. So terrible.
