Michael Jackson - Conrad Murray Told Michael Jackson's Security Guard To Bag Up Drug Vials

DR. Conrad Murray ordered Michael Jackson's bodyguard to stash a number of drug vials as the King of Pop lay lifeless on a bed before calling for emergency services, a court has heard.
Alberto Alvarez took to the stand in Los Angeles Superior Court on Thursday morning (29Sep11) to give evidence in Murray's involuntary manslaughter trial, and testified he was the first of Jackson's security guards to enter the singer's bedroom after hearing the medic call out for help on the fateful day of 25 June, 2009.
Alvarez described, "He (Jackson) was laying on his back, his arms out. His eyes were slightly open and his mouth was open."
It was only moments later that he noticed Jackson's daughter Paris behind Murray, screaming "Daddy!" as the doctor attempted to perform chest compressions with just one hand.
Murray is then alleged to have grabbed a "handful" of vials from Jackson's bedside. He gave them to Alvarez, telling him to "put these in a bag". He said he was also told to take one of two saline bags that contained a "milky white substance" and a vial of medicine - items the bodyguard assumed they were preparing to take with them to the hospital.
Alvarez explained he helped Dr. Murray perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (Cpr) on Jackson after the physician asked if anyone knew how to administer the lifesaving chest-pressing procedure. Alvarez revealed he had been taught Cpr in his youth.
While he was trying to revive Jackson, Murray performed mouth-to-mouth on the star, reportedly telling the bodyguard, "This is the first time that I do mouth to mouth, but I have to - he's my friend."
Alvarez also testified that the chaotic bedroom scene was far removed from what he witnessed at Jackson's rented Los Angeles home the evening before the pop star died, when Alvarez insisted the singer was "very happy".
He added, "I do recall he was in very good spirits."
Murray has pleaded not guilty to allegations he administered the fatal dose of Propofol which cost Jackson his life.
The third day of the trial continues.
