Michael Jackson’s rescue call. 9-1-1 call screen on a Mobile Data Terminal (MDT) in an emergency vehicle at 100 North Carolwood Drive.

Los Angeles Fire Department received a rescue call for a 50 year-old man not breathing at 12:21 PT on Thursday, June 25, 2009. When the paramedic crew in LAFD Ambulance 71 arrived, they found Michael Jackson in cardiac arrest and began advanced life support, including CPR, for more than 40 minutes at the scene. Michael Jackson’s airway was intubated and was being ventilated with a bag mask when he was seen in the open between the rescue ambulance and buildings during the transportation phase to the hospital. Jackson’s personal physician was also at his rented home working as part of the on-scene resuscitation team.

The 9-1-1 caller reveals that the doctor was on the scene at the time of the 9-1-1 call and that CPR was being performed on ‘a 50 year-old male.’ The caller also stated that CPR was being performed on the bed. The 9-1-1 call taker instructs the people at the scene to move the man to the floor. He offered these instructions because a mattress reduces the effectiveness of the chest compressions during CPR. The 9-1-1 call taker also tries to find out if the presumed cardiac arrest was witnessed, which means “were people present when cardiac failure occurred, and did they note the time of the ‘cardiac arrest’ event.” That information is communicated from the 9-1-1 center to the responding rescue ambulance and paramedics. The people at the scene were not cooperative with providing the information regarding ‘witnessed cardiac arrest.’ It is assumed that the on-scene physician was agitated with the questions that were being asked by the 9-1-1 call taker.

A photographer caught a picture of a Mobile Data Terminal (MDT) and shows that LAFD Engine 71 and Rescue Ambulance 71 from Los Angeles Fire Department Fire Station 71 were assigned to the call at 100 North Carolwood Drive at 12:21:04. The display shows the nearest cross street is West Sunset Boulevard. The latitude and longitude of the address plot is also displayed on the MDT as 34.08118800, -118.425086.
