A paramedic sent to Michael Jackson's mansion says he saw the doctor charged in the singer's death scoop up three bottles of lidocaine from the floor and place the vials in a bag during efforts to revive the pop star.
A paramedic testified Thursday that he saw the doctor charged in the death of Michael Jackson grab three bottles of painkillers and place the vials in a bag during futile efforts to revive the pop star at his mansion.
Prosecutors called a third witness Thursday who described frantic efforts by the doctor charged in Michael Jackson's death to gather medication from the floor of the bedroom where the singer died after receiving intravenous doses of a powerful anesthetic.
Blount says he and fellow paramedics refused.
Blount said Murray told paramedics that Jackson had passed out about a minute before 911 was called.
