Doctor tried to find working phone for 30 minutes while Michael Jackson was dying...
New York Daily News ^ | June 29, 2009 | Nancy Dillon

Michael Jackson's doctor scrambled for 30 minutes to find a working phone to call 911 as the superstar lay dying in his palatial Bel Air mansion, the doctor's lawyer revealed Monday.

The land lines in the rented mansion were all shut down for "privacy reasons," and Dr. Carlton Murray didn't use his cell phone to get help because he didn't know Jackson's address, the lawyer said.

Amazingly, Murray called for security, but no one answered. The doctor finally had to run downstairs to get a chef to summon help for the dying King of Pop.

"This entire time, with the exception of him running downstairs, he was performing CPR on Michael Jackson," Edward Chernoff, Murray's lawyer, told CNN.

...

Paramedics raced to the home and spent 42 minutes trying to resuscitate the 50-year-old superstar. They then took him to UCLA Medical Center, where doctors spent another hour in a futile effort to keep him alive.

I guess saying “the Michael Jackson place” wouldn’t do it? “Holy GPS, Batman, how will they find me?”

Use cell phone.
Say, “I am at Michael Jackson's house”

I do believe that is known as a “clue” lol!

The only reason I’m responding to this is because I’m drunk...I’m living in the U.K. at the moment and am disgusted that so much airtime is taken up discussing this freak’s death...there are still young people dying in Iran! However, R.I.P. Farrah and Mr. Mays...

In the day and age I refuse to believe that no one at that mansion had a working cell phone. Heck, the Walmart greeter has a cell phone.

Since Michael wasn't in the best of health to begin with, you'd think the Family Doctor would have had Oxygen and even a home Defibulator at that mansion. Ya'd think.

Sounds like b.s. to me. Newish cell phones have embedded GPS.

BelAir is an “exclusive” gated community, so I’m not sure if they even all have house numbers but he should have had at least an approximate idea where the house is in relation to other landmarks, etc. This doc is a cardiologist and loses his head like this....???

The guy in Walmart isn’t $400 million in debt. He most likely isn’t squatting at various friend’s homes or in hotels on other people’s dime.

These poor kids that weren’t his were living the lives of nomads.

This is the best story the exclusive Houston attorney could muster?

The doctor's car was parked in the driveway. He drove to the address he couldn't remember. He performed CPR on a bed.

No wonder the doctor has so many financial problems. He doesn't use his brain.

The chef called 911 and the doctor prepared a delicious luncheon for the family and various hangers on.

I wasn't speaking of Wacko or his kids. I was referring to the doctor, the security team, the housestaff, all of who could and probably did have a cell phone.

The story is bogus.

Evidently, he wasn't the "family doctor," but a physician hired just a few days earlier by the promotors of the Concert tour to keep an eye on the "talent."

I think it was a rented house, probably not known to be associated with Jackson. I could be wrong, but...

No, you are correct. It is likely very few people knew MJ was living there and the police would not have the house listed as MJ’s current residence. I’m not sure why the house staff couldn’t recall the address or at least the nearest intersection.

GPS locate-r planted in all modern cell phones

You don't even need to have a GPS receiver in your phone. In fact, GPS does not work indoors (though it may remember the last location when it had a direct view of the sky.)

Instead of GPS (and for many years by now) a phone position can be determined by towers that the phone is talking to. This can be fairly precise. Once an ambulance, with siren and lights, comes close enough you can always look out of the window and direct them further.

But in any case, it is highly unbelievable that anyone who lives in a large city and is supposedly intelligent enough to get a MD diploma can't give the 911 enough information that they can dispatch help. Unless, of course, that doctor was brought into the house blindfolded (which can well be true, with this patient :-)

What, IMO, is more likely is that the doctor didn't call 911 intentionally, thinking that the incident is not worth it, or because of some other reasons. But it could be also seen as him making sure the patient is truly dead before anyone can revive him. I wouldn't be surprised if some people come up with such accusations - essentially charging him with with murder, or with a major malpractice at the least.

Heey, hey, now! Historically Black colleges used to be top of the line back a while ago, before the early 80’s. And beware, the communism disease that ruined them will ruin the mainstream universities as well. Hell, the Ivy League is already gone done the tubes.

The article did not say there was not a cel phone to use. It said that he didn’t want to use that, because he couldn’t give an address. He wanted to use a “land-line” because that’s tied to an address at 9/11 (thus, he wouldn’t have to give an address). I’m just saying what the article said, that’s all...

Cell phones, and certainly the latest ones floating around Jackson’s residence and the local dispatch center, now have enhanced 911 which will pick up the cell phone’s location once 911 is called. He wouldn’t have had to voice an address.

You said — He drove to the address he couldn’t remember.

This is quite common with a whole lot of people. For example, I’ve got a brother who has lived in the same place for years. I know how to get over there, and can just about do it in my sleep. But, I can’t tell you even what street he’s on, much less the address. You could be waterboarding me and I wouldn’t know the address or the street. But, I can drive directly there and never get lost.

There was a so called accidental shooting in our rural area a couple of years ago and the person inside the home who called 911 did not know the address either.

He was a guest who had been driven to the home by another person and could not answer the operator’s questions about the location.

The victim of the shooting died.

I had to call 9/11 in Dallas, Texas, one time, with my Oregon cel phone. They had to ask me for an address, and I didn’t know it. I had to actually walk about a block to find the intersection before I could tell them how to get out there. And they had no idea how to get out there without me giving them the intersection.

So, I think this doctor may actually know more about that stuff than the public “commonly” thinks that they know about it.

At least I know, from my call that 9/11 could not dispatch anyone until I got an intersection for them...

One report said he was supposed to be paid 150K a month to tour with MJ, and was supposed to be paid for his work the past month or two. Nothing so far, and the tour folks told him they were sorry, but MJ never got around to signing the contract. D’oh...

After listening to the 911 call, it was amazing to me that nobody mentioned that MJ was the victim in question, if for no other reason than to try and create a quicker response, him being a celeb and all.

I have puzzled over that. If he gave MJ Demerol he should of had narc am right there it would stop the injection cold. You can get a good AED for $1,500. Is the Doctor in the will?

911 Call Centers have the technology to triangulate on a cell phone.

Enhanced 911

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/E911

Wireless Enhanced 911

A second phase of Enhanced 911 service is to allow a wireless or mobile telephone to be located geographically using some form of radiolocation from the cellular network, or by using a Global Positioning System receiver built into the phone itself.

Therefore the doctor is full of B.S.

I heard some audio on radio of the 911 call. There was a lot of hemming and hawing and hesitation in the voices, that’s for sure. Very, very strange.

From the article:

Both of the superstar's parents signed papers requesting that Katherine Jackson be put in charge of his money, claiming he died "intestate," without a will.

And, as for the mansion address, with all of MJ's prescriptions, didn't the Dr. have to give an address to a pharmacy to deliver the Rx's?

Oh boy, I'll bet Mark Fuhrman has interesting observations on this case....

You said — If he gave MJ Demerol...

Well, it might not say that here, but in another article I read about that doctor, he stated that he had, at no time, ever, given Michael Jackson Demerol...

I can’t say too much more about it other than that. So, I’m not sure where the idea came from that the doctor gave Demerol to Michael Jackson.
