Michael Jackson's PA Testifies At Doctor's Trial
Michael Amir Williams claims Murray never asked him to call 911...
Michael Jackson's personal assistant has given evidence at Dr. Conrad Murray's involuntary manslaughter trial, stating he was never told to call an ambulance.
Michael Amir Williams took to the stand yesterday, where the court were played a 35-second answer phone message left by a "frantic" Murray - moments after he found the King of Pop unconscious.
In the message to Williams, the physician can be heard saying: "Call me right away, please. Please call me right away. Thank you."
Williams then returned Murray's call, where the doctor said: "Get here right away. Mr Jackson had a bad reaction. Get somebody up here immediately."
Jackson's personal assistant then revealed that although Murray seemed "frantic", he had NOT asked him to call 911 and didn't describe the Thriller singer's condition, but added: "I knew it was serious."
MJ's former chief of security Faheem Muhammad also testified, claiming that Michael's two children - Prince and Paris - had seen their father lying lifeless on the floor as Murray tried to revive him.
Muhammad explained: "Paris was on the ground, balled up, crying. Prince was just standing there. He just had a real shocked, slowly-crying type of look on his face."
Kathy Jorrie, a lawyer for AEG live who were planning Jackson's This Is It tour, also told the court that Murray had asked to buy a CPR machine, as well as wanting a nurse to be present with the legend in London.
She said: "He wanted to make sure that there was somebody else available to be of assistance" adding: "Dr Murray told me Michael Jackson was perfectly healthy, in excellent condition."
The trial resumes today and is expected to continue for around five weeks. If found guilty, Murray could spend up to four years behind bars.
