Monday May 17, 2010

The doctor facing involuntary manslaughter charges following the death of Michael Jackson, was at the centre of a mid-air medical emergency this week.

After a young mother fell unconscious on his flight, Dr Conrad Murray was able to stabilise the woman using equipment from the plane's medical kit.

The 57-year-old set up an IV line and monitored her while the Phoenix-bound flight was diverted to New Mexico for an emergency landing.

"We're not surprised," said Miranda Sevcik, from the legal team representing the medic.

"He's a good doctor, we've always said he was a good doctor, and that's what good doctors do is save people." Michael's life in pictures
