Dr. Conrad Murray reportedly claims he was able to restart Michael Jackson‘s heart before paramedics arrived and UCLA Medical Center doctors claim there was heart rhythmic activity found on tests.
Doctors ran two EKGs on Michael and one doctor who interpreted the results claim both times there was rhythmic activity, TMZ reports.
According to TMZ sources, Dr. Murray claims before paramedics arrived he was able to restart Michael’s heart and heart activity was then maintained in the ambulance.
However, Dr. Murray’s claims contradict paramedics at the scene because they believed Michael was dead and wanted to take him to the morgue rather than UCLA.
In addition, his claims contradict Joe Jackson‘s lawyer, Brian Oxman, who told TMZ he believes Jackson was dead before paramedics arrived and that the weak pulse found at UCLA was in reaction to resuscitation efforts.
The criminal case is now turning into a legal fight between medical experts and will include a lot of interpretation of medical charts.
