Report: Michael Jackson's Doctor Interrupted CPR

Documents obtained by The Associated Press allege that Michael Jackson's doctor stopped CPR on the stricken star and delayed calling 911 so he could collect drug vials in the room.

The account was given to investigators on August 31 by Alberto Alvarez, Jackson's logistics director. He was summoned to the pop star's side by another Jackson aide who received a frantic call from Dr. Conrad Murray after Jackson was unresponsive.

Jackson died June 25 from an overdose of the powerful anesthetic propofol and two other sedatives administered by Murray. Alvarez said the doctor stopped CPR so he could hand him drug vials and told him to put them in a bag.

Murray's lawyer questioned Alvarez's account, saying that in an earlier statement to police he did not mention the vials.

    He did not even have to begin CPR. And the likelihood of it working in this situation in the first place is less than zero. But I will agree the doctor is a quack and was just a leach.

    If this is the truth, then this doctor should go to jail for a long time. It sounds like he is covering up something here, but I know that Mikey boy was on all different kinds of drugs that would have probably would have killed him anyways. If I was that doctor, I would have told him to find another doctor. I would not want to be risking having anything to do with someones death, even if I were a doctor, no matter what the amount of money it would be. That's just wrong and stupid.

    Drug addict or not..would you want a doctor to stop CPR to hide stuff? This man took an oath and sounds like to me he didn't uphold his oath at all. He was more worried about his own hide than the patient.

    Charge him with murder? For what? Micheal Jackson was a drug adddict that died as a result of it.

    If this is the truth,then the "doc" needs to go to jail for murder. What a shame this even had to happen.
