Michael Jackson - Conrad Murray 'Asked For Medication To Be Removed'

Dr. Conrad Murray asked for the Propofol to be removed from Michael Jackson's bedroom before calling 911 on the day of the singer's death, a court heard today (29.09.11).

The medic - who is currently on trial for the involuntary manslaughter of the 'Thriller' singer, who died from acute Propofol intoxication on June 25 2009 - allegedly told Michael's security guard Alberto Alvarez to get rid of all the medication vials in the room of his Los Angeles home before calling the emergencies services.

Alvarez was the first bodyguard to reach Michael's bedroom after his personal physician called for his help and has told the Los Angeles courtroom how Murray grabbed the vials from a nightstand next to Michael, who was still in his bed.

He said Murray told him Michael had had a "bad reaction" and when he entered the room the doctor was giving him chest compressions on the bed.

He also noticed a catheter attached to Michael's penis.

Alvarez also claimed Murray gave him a "handful" of vials and told him to "put these in a bag", as well as ordering him to take the saline bag from the IV stand and put it in the bag as well.

Michael was then taken to hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Alvarez also told the jury Michael, 50, was in good spirits at rehearsals the night before he died.

He testified: "He was very happy. I do recall he was in very good spirits."

Murray has pleaded not guilty to involuntary manslaughter in connection with Michael's death but if found guilty, faces four years in jail.

The trial continues.
