Michael Jackson’s doctor leaped to the rescue and possibly saved a life Saturday when a female airline passenger fainted at 30,000 feet and needed urgent medical attention, TMZ reported.
The entertainment website said Dr. Conrad Murray was aboard a US Airways flight from Houston to Phoenix when a flight attendant asked on the loudspeaker if there was a doctor on board.
Murray jumped out of his seat, according to TMZ sources, and evaluated the woman, who was in her 20s and had “a very weak pulse.”
He inserted an IV and stabilized her until the flight could make an emergency landing in Albuquerque, N.M., TMZ said.
The website, which said it later spoke with the unidentified woman, said she reported feeling lightheaded and then fainted for about 30 minutes.
When she regained consciousness, Murray was standing over her and said, "You probably know me ... I was Michael Jackson's doctor."
When asked what she would say to Murray, she told TMZ, "Thank you so, so, so much. Thank you for all your help. Thank you for helping me even without knowing me. Thank you."
The woman has been released from the hospital, the website reported.
Murray was charged with involuntary manslaughter last February in connection with Jackson’s death.
