    The only thing the person who called 911 said was the person was 50 years old. Michael was never mentioned by name. If he had been help may have been received quicker.

    Thanks, I didn't think his name was mentioned. Help may have been quicker, but Michael may have been dead before they did arrive. Okay, back to laundry, but I'll be back!

    Re: Michael Jackson is Dead at 50 yrs. of age

    Unfortunatly, there are many reasons why they may have not mentioned Michael by name. My best guess would be because these calls are often picked up quickly by the press and they didn't want them to know there was a problem with Michael. The thing is, I'm sure the outlets are familiar with the address so that probably did little good. If ever there was a time in life to name drop that would have been the time.

    I don't see why saying someones name would make the EMS respond quicker...

    I know many in the press listen to the scanners, and the caller had to use the cell phone, as there was no land line phone. I know Dr. Murray's atty said the doctor did not know the address of the property.

    It shouldn't, but in this world you just never know. I'd like to think that I'd get the same response time as Michael Jackson, but I have my doubts.

    I will say that the only time I had to call 911 they showed up in super record time. And I am very close to that site. And I am not a celebrity.

    That's great to know, because here in nyc it varies. I won't say because of status, but I have seen some poor response times. My grandmother was having a heart attack and it took them the better part of 30 minutes to respond. Apparently her responsiveness made her a lower priority, even though she was in her 80's and had a history of heart attacks. I'm sure it depends on what else is going on at the time, however, the next time I drove her myself.

    It depends on how busy the system is at the moment, what is said on the phone, where the nearest responding medical help is coming from. It can definitely be quicker to get your person there yourself, but is that the safest, most realistic way? Maybe, maybe not.

    Re: Michael Jackson is Dead at 50 yrs. of age

    I'm sure that response varies based on lots of things like symptoms stated on the phone, how busy they are, etc. I do know that appx. 10 EMTS showed up at my door and I actually felt bad that I wasn't half dead when they got there.
    I have noticed that not all areas in the city, or any other city for that matter, get the same response.
    However, I do like that everyone who lives here does get the same treatment. That means a lot to me.
