Conrad Murray trial: Paris Jackson ‘on the floor balled up, crying’
Faheem Muhammad, head of Jackson's security team, recalled walking into the upstairs bedroom and seeing Dr. Conrad Murray with the singer sprawled out on the floor on the far side of the bed. Outside the door, two of Jackson's children, Paris and Prince, were in shock, Muhammad recalled.
"Paris was on the floor balled up, crying," he testified.
An attorney for Murray had tried to suggest in cross-examination that it would have been natural for the doctor to rely on the assistant.
"Would it surprise you, would it be strange for Dr. Murray to call you in the event of an emergency at the house?" attorney Ed Chernoff asked.
"If Mr. Jackson were dying it would, for me personally," he responded.
