Michael Jackson Has Heart Attack, Dies at 50

by at . Comments

Michael Jackson passed away this afternoon. He was 50 years old.

A 911 call came in at 12:21 p.m. at his Holmby Hills home in L.A. He was taken by ambulance to a hospital in Los Angeles after suffering cardiac arrest. Paramedics administered CPR to the music icon in the ambulance.

MJ IS ALIVE!!!

Joe Jackson, father of Michael Jackson, said he had been alerted to the emergency but didn't have details. His mother was reportedly on the way to visit him as well.

"I am in Las Vegas but yes people in Los Angeles called me and are with Michael and tell me he was taken to the hospital," the elder Jackson told an E! News reporter. "His mother is on her way to the hospital now to check in on him.

"I am not sure what's wrong. I am waiting to hear back."

According to TMZ, a Jackson family member said the King of Pop was in "really bad shape" and his brothers were headed to UCLA Medical Center where he was.

He died shortly thereafter.

When paramedics arrived, Jackson had no pulse and they never got a pulse back.

Michael Jackson is survived by his three children: Michael Joseph Jackson, Jr., Paris Michael Katherine Jackson and Prince "Blanket" Michael Jackson II.

He had 13 number one hits during his solo career, considered by many to be the greatest in history. He will be missed. There will never be another like him.

Now, I don't wish to cheapen or mock the friendship Taylor and Jackson experienced. It's not my place to judge that whatsoever. But how many other people, fans, and gawkers who didn't share anything close to their relationship are claiming they feel the same way? Read more: http://richardtgarner.blogspot...
