Michael Jackson - Conrad Murray Failed To Mention Propofol To Emergency Physician

DR. Conrad Murray failed to inform an emergency room doctor who was trying to save Michael Jackson's life that he had given the King of Pop the powerful anaesthetic Propofol, a court has heard.
Murray is accused of administering the fatal dose of the drug which claimed Jackson's life on 25 June, 2009, and he is currently on trial for involuntary manslaughter in Los Angeles Superior Court.
Dr. Richelle Cooper first took to the stand on Friday (30Sep11) and told how Murray had insisted Jackson was just "dehydrated" when he was admitted to her care at Ronald Reagan Ucla Medical Center. She said Jackson "did not have a pulse" when he arrived at the hospital.
She resumed her testimony on Monday (03Oct11), when she confirmed to the court that Murray had made no mention of providing Propofol to his famous patient - as she attempted to resuscitate the star - and only revealed he had administered the sedative lorazepam, sending the singer into cardiac arrest.
Cooper also testified that she had given paramedics on the scene at Jackson's rented California home permission to pronounce the superstar dead, although the singer was then admitted to hospital on Murray's insistence in a desperate bid to try and resuscitate the King of Pop.
The trial continues.
