Michael Jackson doctor helps passenger in distress
Associated Press Writer
PHOENIX – The doctor accused of administering a powerful anesthetic that killed pop star Michael Jackson has helped stabilize a young woman who fell unconscious on a US Airways jet to Phoenix.
Conrad Murray’s spokeswoman says the doctor found the woman on Saturday with a very weak pulse. Miranda Sevcik says he stabilized her condition using equipment in the jet’s medical bag, including hooking her up to an IV.
A US Airways spokesman says Flight 641 from Houston was diverted to Albuquerque, N.M. because of a medical emergency. Spokesman Todd Lehmacher (LEE-Mach-er) says a doctor on board helped the woman, but declined to name the physician.
