Paramedic Testifies in Conrad Murray Trial About Michael Jackson's Death
The paramedic who responded to Michael Jackson's mansion on the day he died described the desperate attempt to save the King of Pop.
Paramedic Richard Senneff testified on day four of the manslaughter trial of Dr. Conrad Murray.
Senneff told the court, "His skin was very cool to the touch. His eyes were open. They were dry and his pupils were dilated."
An attorney asked Senneff, "Describe Dr. Murray's demeanor, please."
"Frantic," said Senneff.
Tru TV's In Session correspondent Beth Karas, told INSIDE EDITION, "The paramedic's testimony is really important because they're not Michael Jackson's employees who might want to color their testimony and make Conrad Murray look like the bad guy to protect Michael Jackson in case he did something bad to himself. They're just calling it like it is."
Dr. Murray allegedly never informed the paramedics that Jackson had been given the powerful anesthetic Propofol.
Senneff said, "I asked what his underlying health condition was. He (Dr. Conrad Murray) did not respond. I asked again what his underlying health condition was. He did not respond. And then, I think it was the third, he said 'Nothing. Nothing. He has nothing.' And simply, that did not add up to me."
Michael Jackson's former attorney Tom Mesereau told INSIDE EDITION, "He (Dr. Conrad Murray) tried to hide Propofol from the paramedics. Hide Propofol from police. Hide Propofol from the doctors at the hospital. He held back information because he put his own interests ahead of Michael Jackson."
It's the end of a difficult week for Michael Jackson's family. They are trying desperately to shield his children, Paris, Prince, and Blanket, from the graphic and disturbing testimony. As Katherine Jackson arrived in court she said her grandchildren are not watching coverage of the trial.
But inside the courtroom, the children keep on coming up in dramatic testimony. Jackson's personel chef, Kai Chase, said when Dr. Murray found Jackson's lifeless body he cried out for her to get Prince.
Chase told the court, "He yelled, 'Go get help! Go get security! Go get Prince.' "
HLN's Jane Velez-Mitchell told INSIDE EDITION, "How is it possible for a doctor to allow kids into a room when their father's eyes are open and he has no pulse? I mean, that is the height of irresponsibility as a human being and a doctor."
