VIDEO: Jermaine Jackson Formally Announces Michael’s Death
At a brief news conference this evening, Jermaine Jackson addressed the media on behalf of his entire family.
“My brother, the legendary king of pop, Michael Jackson, passed away on Thursday, June 25, at 2:26 p.m. It is believed he suffered cardiac arrest in his home. However, the cause of his death is unknown until the results of the autopsy are known.
His personal physician who was with him at the time attempted to resuscitate my brother - as did the paramedics who transported him Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center. Upon arriving at the hospital at approximately 1:14 p.m., a team of doctors, including emergency physicians and cardiologists, attempted to resuscitate him for a period of more than one hour. They were unsuccessful.
Our family requests that the media please respect our privacy during this tough time. May Allah be with you Michael, always. Love you.”
Although it’s been speculated that prescription medication may have played a role in Michael’s death, more won’t be known until the initial autopsy scheduled for Friday.
