Doctor: “Jackson Was Dead An Hour Before Hospital Arrival”!

By on 7 January, 2011

 

 

Dr. Richelle Cooper took to the stand at an ongoing preliminary court hearing to testify that superstar Michael Jackson was dead an hour before his body arrived at the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center in June, 2009.
 

Cooper – emergency room doctor at the time of the incident – revealed she gave paramedics who raced to the singer’s rented Holmby Hills, Los Angeles home the authorisation to pronounce the Thriller singer dead. However, Dr. Conrad Murray (who found the star’s lifeless body in his bedroom) insisted they try to resuscitate the King of Pop for almost an hour.
 
Cooper told the court on yesterday (6th January 2010) she authorised paramedics to pronounce Jackson dead at 12.57pm on 25 June, 2009, but they declined at Murray‘s request – and because of the singer’s celebrity. She officially pronounced Jackson dead at 2.26pm after the singer’s body arrived at the hospital.
 
Murray‘s girlfriend Nicole Alvarez, who the doctor called from the ambulance to UCLA, has been ordered to appear in court today.

The preliminary hearing began on Tuesday (4th January 2011) and is expected to last two weeks – the result of which will determine whether Murray will stand trial on involuntary manslaughter charges relating to Jackson‘s death.
