The King of Pop is dead. Michael Jackson suffered cardiac arrest earlier this afternoon and paramedics were unable to revive him.
At 12:21PM a 911 call was placed from Michael Jackson's home in Holmby Hills in Los Angeles. There are conflicting reports, but CNN is reporting that family members were present when he apparently collapsed from cardiac arrest. Paramedics administered CPR in the ambulance, and Jackson is said to have been in a brief coma at UCLA medical center before dying.
Michael is survived by three children: Michael Joseph Jackson, Jr., Paris Michael Katherine Jackson, and Prince "Blanket" Michael Jackson II. He was just 50 years old.
One of the greatest to ever do it, may he rest in peace.
