Michael's children witnessed distressing last moments

Thursday January 6, 2011

Michael Jackson's bodyguard fought back tears as he told an LA court how the singer's children walked in while Doctor Conrad Murray attempted to save him.

Alberto Alvarez said the physician insisted Prince Michael and Paris were taken from the room after the star’s daughter burst into tears and screamed: "Daddy".

He claimed Dr Murray – who had been carrying out CPR - told him: "Don’t let them see their father like this." 

His testimony came during the second day of the preliminary hearing into the singer's death.

Relatives including Janet Jackson (pictured) were present.

Mr Alvarez also claimed Dr Murray instructed him to remove a bag full of bottles from the star’s bedside and an intravenous (IV) bag - before calling the authorities.
