(CNN) — Entertainer Michael Jackson has died after being taken to a hospital on Thursday after suffering cardiac arrest, according to multiple reports including the Los Angeles Times and the Associated Press. CNN has not confirmed his death.
Jackson, 50, had been in a coma at the hospital, sources told CNN.
Brian Oxman, a Jackson family attorney, said he was told by brother Randy Jackson that Michael Jackson collapsed at his home in west Los Angeles, California, Thursday morning.
Family members were told of the situation and were either at the hospital or en route, Oxman said.
Fire Capt. Steve Ruda told CNN a 911 call came in from a west Los Angeles residence at 12:21 p.m.
Ruda said Jackson was treated and transferred to the UCLA Medical Center.
Asked specifics of the patient’s condition, he said he could not discuss them because of federal privacy laws.
For anyone who knows me, you know that I am a HUGE Michael Jackson fan. Today on June 25, 2009 – Michael Jackson has died. This is absolutely the worst and saddest day of my life. The King of Pop is no longer with us. As I am writing this blog, I am listening to Toronto’s FLOW 93.5 as DJ Starting From Scratch plays all of Michael Jackson’s classics. I am extremely emotional. All I can say is Rest In Peace Michael Jackson. You are loved by many around the world. You leave 40 years of history. We will NEVER forget and always cherish what you have done and we will continue to keep your legacy alive.
