How Did Michael Jackson Die?
Michael Jackson is dead at 50. Though there has been rumors of Michael Jackson being in poor health for years, it is still a surprise to his past and present fans that he has passed away.
Mercury News.com reported today that paramedics were called by someone unknown (possibly a staff member)to go to Michael Jackson’s home. When they arrived at 12:26 PM, they found the singer who was not breathing. Following procedures, they then performed CPR on him. They revived him but he was in a coma. Not long at the hospital, doctors pronouced him dead.
WCPO.com and LA Times said in an article that Michael Jackson died of cardiac arrest. TMZ says that Michael Jackson was already dead when the paramedics got to his home so it’s hard to know what news source to believe. TMZ also states that several members of Michael Jackon’s family were at the UCLA hospital, including La Toya Jackson.
Did Michael Jackson’s health problems and sometimes seemingly odd lifestye lead to his death?
Sponkit Celebrity blog posted this year that Michael Jackson’s rep denied that the pop singer had any health problems. Obviously there may have been some truth stretched, as Michael Jackson is dead. At 50.
In 2008, Fametastic posted an article about Michael Jackson being wheelchair bound. They also said that his hands were peeling similar to a snake and that he kept his mask on at all times.
So though it seems surprising that Michael Jackson is dead…is it really? He’s apparently been not in great shape for a while now.
Popeater reported on 6/26/09 that drugs may be involved in his death. They say that TMZ reported that Michael Jackson got a shot of demerol shortly before he went into caradiac arrest on Thrusday. Some of Michael Jackson’s family members say that the dose may have been too high and that they think it led to his death.
For years, he touched the world with his music, before having legal problems, child molestion charges and money issues. One wonders what will happen to his three children. Will they be better off without him or will they have a harder time in life because their famous father is gone is two of the questions that comes to my mind. His parenting skills were often under fire, including the time that he dangled one of his children off of a balcony for everyone to see. With names such as Michael Joseph Jackson, Jr., Paris Michael Katherine Jackson and Prince Michael Jackson II, they will certainly never forget their famous father.
Though Michael Jackson of late had a more low key appearance in society, he will still leave behind lifelong fans. Even if you didn’t like the man, most of his music is unforgettable. He will forever be known as the King of Pop.
