Michael Jackson's daughter Paris was "balled up crying" as Dr. Conrad Murray tried to resuscitate him, a court heard yesterday (28.09.11).
The late 'Beat It' singer's head of security, Faheem Muhammad, took to the stand at the trial of the star's personal physician - who is accused of involuntary manslaughter - to give his version of events on the morning of the star's death from acute Propofol intoxication in June 2009.
Faheem told how he had come into Michael's bedroom to find Dr. Murray administering first aid.
He described looking at the singer's body, saying: "His eyes were open and his mouth was slightly open. He appeared to be dead. I was shocked."
It was only then he saw Paris, 13, and her older brother, Prince Michael II, 14, on the landing outside the room, distressed.
He told the court: "Paris was on the ground balled up crying and Prince was standing there. He just had a shocked, slightly crying look on his face."
When asked if he thought Michael looked dead, he replied: "Yes"
Faheem immediately took the children downstairs to a "secure location where they couldn't see what was going on."
He added that Alberto Alvarez, another member of the security team, stayed to help Dr. Murray give CPR.
Medics then attended the scene and Michael was later pronounced dead at hospital.
Yesterday, testimonies were also heard from Michael's personal assistant Michael Amir Williams and Concert promoter Paul Gongaware, who told how Michael appeared fit and well in rehearsals just days before his death.
The trial continues.
If convicted, Murray faces up to four years in prison.
