Breaking: Michael Jackson Heart Attack
Early Thursday afternoon, pop-icon Michael Jackson was rushed to the hospital after suffering from a serious cardiac arrest. The 50-year-old Jackson is said to have had the heart attack at his Los Angeles home in Holmby Hills around 12:00 PM PST after which a 911 call was received at 12:21 PM. He was then sent to the Cedar-Sinai Medical Center in LA, in an ambulance during which, according to eye-witnesses, he was given CPR by the ambulances’ paramedics.
According to TMZ, a family member at the hospital said that Jackson was in “really bad shape.” Adding to this prognosis is Micheal’s dad, Joe Jackson, who just told the Daily Mail, that “he is not doing well.” This story is still new, but his mother and brother are said to be on their way.
Fearing a news frenzy, the streets surrounding Cedar-Sinai are said to have been blocked off by yellow tape.
UPDATE TWO: Rumors now circulating that Jackson overdosed on sleeping pills. Still unconfirmed however.
