A recording that is believed to detail the moment paramedics broke the news of Michael Jackson’s death has emerged.
"Patient is Michael Jackson, the pop star singer. No pulse, no breathing. Unresponsive. Tried to resuscitate him. Unsuccessful," a LAFD medical worker can apparently be heard saying.
"We've done everything we can. We should be there in five minutes. It doesn't look good. It doesn't look good."
If geuine, the tape - which emerged on an ambulance workers’ internet forum, according to The Sun - may be used as evidence in the manslaughter trial of Dr Conrad Murray, the king of pop's personal physician.
In response, an LAFD spokesman says he cannot "confirm that it is one of our workers. It could be. They refer to 'pop star Michael Jackson' but it is not our practice to name names."
