    Default Michael Jackson rushed to hospital: report

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20090625/en_nm/us_jackson


    LOS ANGELES (Reuters) Pop star Michael Jackson has been rushed to a Los Angeles-area hospital by fire department paramedics who found him not breathing when they arrived at the singer's home, the Los Angeles Times reported on Thursday.
    The newspaper said paramedics performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation at the scene before taking him to the UCLA Medical Center hospital.
    No further details were immediately available, and spokespersons for Jackson could not be reached for comment.
    Jackson, 50, is due to start a series of comeback concerts in London on July 13 running until March 2010. The singer, whose hits include "Thriller" and "Billy Jean," has been rehearsing in the Los Angeles area for the past two months.
    The shows for the 50 London concerts sold out within hours of going on sale in March.
    Jackson, who started out as a child star in the band "The Jackson 5" more than 40 years ago, has lived as a virtual recluse since his acquittal in 2005 on charges of child molestation.
    There have been concerns about Jackson's health in recent years but the promoters of the London shows, AEG Live, said in March that Jackson had passed a 4-1/2 hour physical examination with independent doctors.

    This really was a surprise. Never cared much for him, but Thriller was great and one of my favorites.

    He wasn't that bright of a guy anyway, but it's sad for his life to be taken.
