How Jackson’s cardiologist administered CPR to the stricken star
In an earlier entry, Mark A. noted that Michael Jackson’s cardiologist, who was personally attending on him at the time of his fatal attack, is black, and wondered whether affirmative action was a factor in Jackson’s death.

If you listen to the 911 call from Michael Jackson’s house, you can hear the caller telling the 911 operator that this black doctor is trying to administer CPR to Jackson on the bed! The 911 operator tells them to move Jackson to the firm surface of the floor. Any high school kid knows that CPR needs to be administered on a firm surface. Certainly a cardiologist should know this.

I just heard the 911 call over the radio. A young man (whose relationship to Jackson is unclear) frantically tells the 911 operator that Jackson is unconscious on the bed, and that someone is doing chest compressions on him. The first thing the operator tells the young man is to move Jackson off the bed, since a hard surface is required for proper chest compression. So Jackson was being pushed into the springs of the mattress and compression could not be achieved. This is one of the things you learn in CPR.Mark A. writes:
My God! That is incredible!
