Recording Tape of Michael Jackson Emergency Call Is a Hoax
A recording of an emergency call reportedly made on the day Michael Jackson died has been exposed as a hoax. The taped conversation was said to feature the voice of a male paramedic who was called to treat the late King of Pop after he suffered a cardiac arrest at his California home on the morning of June 25, 2009.
The man can be heard saying, "Patient is Michael Jackson, the pop star singer... We should be there in five minutes. It doesn't look good." But Los Angeles City Fire Department Captain Steve Ruda has dismissed the tape as a fake, because the alleged paramedic breaks the rules by naming the patient and fails to use the correct terminology.
Captain Ruda tells TMZ.com, "It is not our conversation. It is not any of the paramedics who treated Michael Jackson."
