Dr. Conrad Murray failed to tell paramedics he had given Michael Jackson Propofol - the harmful sedative which killed him - on the day he died
Dr. Conrad Murray failed to tell paramedics he had given Michael Jackson Propofol.
Documents from the official ambulance report which was filled out by medics on the June 25 last year - the day the pop star died from cardiac arrest, caused by "acute Propofol intoxication" - have been released, and state that Michael's personal physician didn't mention he administered the anaesthetic shortly before his passing.
A family friend told the News of the World newspaper: "This is the clearest suggestion yet that Murray misled the paramedics. Why didn't he tell them about the Propofol? We are sick at what this report indicates."
Murray was charged with involuntary manslaughter over the late 'Thriller' singer's death earlier this year. He has pleaded not guilty.
The notes written by the paramedics state they quizzed Murray about which medications Michael was on.
However, Murray told them the late 'King of Pop' had only taken the sedative Lorazepam and fluids to rehydrate him after he complained of being exhausted following a sleepless night.
The medications stated are different from what Murray has previously told Police.
Detectives claim Murray also administered Valium, Midazolam, Flumanzenil and Propofol during the night, and tests carried out by a coroner discovered Michael's blood also contained Lorazepam as well as other anxiety sedatives Lidocaine, Diazepam, Nordiazepam and Midazolam, plus Ephedrine which can be used for sleep disorders and Propofol.
Part of the document has been left blank, which suggest the physician failed to discuss with medics in detail about the medications Michael had taken.
The documents also show how Michael had already flat-lined - a term used when there is no heart activity - before emergency services had arrived at his home.
On their arrival, he was given two rounds of heart-revival drugs and was declared dead at the scene.
However, Murray insisted the pop star's body was rushed to hospital and demanded doctors tried to revive him for a third time.
This was unsuccessful and Michael passed away, aged 50.
