This might be one of the saddest claims about Michael Jackson’s 2009 death.
A new book, “83 Minutes,” by Mark Langthrone and Matt Richards chronicles the events surrounding Michael Jackson’s untimely death and the actions taken by Dr. Conrad Murray.
The authors claim that Murray administered 25 mg of Propofol to Jackson around 10:40 a.m. the morning of June 25, 2009. Jackson reportedly had had several doses of the powerful sedative throughout the night before his death as well. Less than two hours later, Jackson’s chef ran into Murray in a panic, asking for help from Jackson’s assistant, Alberto Alvarez.
Murray and Alvarez reportedly placed a call to 911 and started to perform CPR on the late singer.
The book claims that Jackson’s children, Prince, then 12 and Paris Jackson, then 12, walked in on Murray trying to resuscitate their father.
According to the book, Prince stood in the doorway, “gently weeping with a look of shock on his face at seeing his father stricken on the floor.”
“Paris crumpled to her knees instantly, screaming ‘Daddy’ and beginning to cry hysterically,” the book reads.
Murray reportedly called for the children to be removed, “don’t let them see their dad like this,” he screamed as Jackson laid.
Just before the ambulance arrived at 12:26 p.m., a nanny took the children out of the room. Jackson was pronounced dead an hour later at UCLA Medical Center.
Murray was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in 2011. He was released in 2013 after serving half of his four year jail sentence.
Paris and Prince continue to honor their father in the years after his death. Both of Jackson’s children have tattoos to commorate their late father.
