June 25, 2009 marked the sudden and shocking loss of the King of Pop, Michael Jackson.

At the young age of 50, Jackson reportedly suffered from cardiac arrest at his home where CPR was performed.  Sadly, he never recovered, and was pronounced dead at 2:26 p.m. PST.

While no official cause of death will be released until after an autopsy is performed, Jackson’s brother Jermaine told the following statement to the media gathered outside the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center just before 6:30 p.m.:

“My brother, the legendary King of Pop, Michael Jackson, passed away on Thursday, June 25, at 2:26 p.m. It is believed he suffered cardiac arrest in his home. However, the cause of his death is unknown until the results of the autopsy are known.

The personal physician who was with him at the time attempted to resuscitate my brother. As did paramedics who transported him” [to the hospital.]

“Upon arriving at the hospital at approximately 1:14 p.m., a team of doctors, including emergency phsyicians and cardiologists, attempted to resuscitate him for a period of one hour and they were unsuccessful.

Our family requests that the media please respect our privacy during this tough time, and may Allah be with you Michael, always.”
