"Jackson had a bad reaction."
—-Alberto Alvarez, claiming Dr. Murray abandoned the performer in his haste to get rid of incriminating evidence.

Conrad Murray Stopped Performing CPR on Superstar Until He Hid Drugs, Evidence
Dr. Conrad Murray is in even more hot water.

Michael Jackson’s disgraced medic, accused of involuntary manslaughter in his death, apparently stopped performing CPR on the star and refused to call 911 until he frantically collected vials of potentially incriminating prescription drugs.

Murray was doing chest compressions with one hand when he suddenly stopped and began grabbing the vials--ordering an aide to stuff them, along with a partially filled IV bag, into two canvas carrying cases.

Those statements were made by Alberto Alvarez, a Michael aide, who told AP, "[Jackson] had a bad reaction."

At one point, two of Jackson's kids, Prince and Paris hurried into the room and freaked when they saw Murray and Alvarez desperately trying to save their dad before their nanny whisked them away.

Alvarez told investigators that he rushed to Jackson's room at 12:17 p.m. on June 25 and saw Jackson lying in bed with his mouth and eyes wide open and no apparent signs of life, an IV needle attached to his leg.

Murray was performing CPR on the star with one hand at the time, but stopped and began grabbing nearby vials, shoving them in a plastic bag, which he instructed Alvarez to put into a brown canvas carrier.

The cardiologist then allegedly told Alvarez to take the IV bag with a milky substance in it from the stand next to Jacko's bed and put it in a blue carrier.

A coroner has ruled that the superstar died of an overdose of the hospital-grade anesthetic propofol and two other sedatives.

Alvarez told investigators that Murray waited until the vials and IV bag were put in the canvas bags before telling him to call 911.

"I need an ambulance as soon as possible," Alvarez told the dispatcher, according to the statement. "We have a gentleman here that needs help, and he's not breathing."

Bodyguard Faheem Muhammed rushed into the chaotic room and started doing chest compressions while Murray performed mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.

Murray told the men that he had never performed CPR before, a claim his lawyer, Ed Chernoff, said was false.

Paramedics arrived at 12:27 p.m. and two minutes later said the singer had no pulse and wasn't breathing. Jackson died two hours later in the hospital.

The statements indicate that Murray left Jackson's side to retrieve a cream from the house "so the world wouldn't find out about it."

Chernoff discounted Alvarez’s testimony.

"[Alvarez] didn't say any of those things, then two months later, all of a sudden, the doc is throwing bottles into the bag," Chernoff said. "[His] statement is inconsistent with his previous statement."
