Conrad Murray trial: Michael Jackson’s mother and children’s reaction to his death

During Tuesday’s session, jurors listened to a recording of Dr. Murray telling investigators how MJ’s mother Katherine and his three children reacted to the news that Jackson had died.

In the recording, Murray recounts how he and and an emergency room doctor brought Katherine Jackson into a private room at UCLA Medical Center .

“Well, how is he?” Katherine asked. “He’s not dead, is he?”

“And the doctor said, ‘Yes.’ And she broke down… and wept. We stayed there, held her hand,” Murray said in the recording.

The cardiologist then had to break the news that their father had died to MJ’s three children, Prince, Paris and Blanket.

Murray says Paris protested that “she will live alone without her dad. She didn’t want to be an orphan.”

He quoted Paris, who asked him: “Dr. Murray, you said you save a lot of patients. You save people with heart attacks, and you couldn’t save my dad?”

“I tried my best,” he answered her.

On Saturday, Michael’s three kids appeared on stage at the Michael Forever tribute concert in Wales.
