After a late rehearsal the next morning Jackson does not come out of his bedroom. His doctor, Conrad Murray finds Jackson in bed and not breathing. Jackson has a weak pulse, and his body is still warm. After trying to revive Jackson for five to ten minutes Murray calls for help. Murray stated that he was hindered because there was no landline in the house. Murray cannot use his cell phone to call 911 because he does not know the exact address. Murray phones security, but does not get an answer so he runs downstairs, yells for help, and tells a chef to bring security up to the room. By the time security calls 911 at least 30 minutes has passed.
Paramedics reach Jackson at 12:26 p.m. – he is not breathing.
