A new recording has surfaced on an ambulance workers' web forum and purports to be a Los Angeles Fire Department paramedic calling the UCLA hospital to tell them that Michael Jackson, whom they were transporting, has died.
The voice says: "Patient is Michael Jackson, the pop star singer. No pulse, no breathing. Unresponsive. Tried to resuscitate him. Unsuccessful. We've done everything we can. We should be there in five minutes. It doesn't look good. It doesn't look good."
An LAFD spokesman tells the Sun newspaper: "I couldn't confirm that is one of our workers. It could be. They refer to 'pop star Michael Jackson' but it is not our practice to name names."
