The legendary King of Pop, Michael Jackson died Thursday in his Los Angeles home. According to reports, Michael Jackson died of a cardiac arrest, which is ironic since his promoters said that Michael Jackson passed a long and hard of series of health test because he is getting ready for a series of concert in Europe, particularly in London. He was suppose to have a series of comeback concerts.
The circumstances of his death were not immediately clear. Jackson was not breathing when Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics responded to a call at his Los Angeles home about 12:30 p.m., Capt. Steve Ruda told the Los Angeles Times. The paramedics performed CPR and took him to UCLA Medical Center, Ruda told the newspaper.
Hundreds of people gathered outside the hospital as word of his death spread. The emergency entrance at the UCLA Medical Center, which is near Jackson’s rented home, was roped off with police tape.
“Ladies and gentlemen, Michael Jackson has just died,” a woman boarding a Manhattan bus called out shortly after the news was announced. Immediately many riders reached for their cell phones.
