911 transcript: 'He's not breathing'

The state played the 911 call Jackson's security guard, Alberto Alvarez, placed on June 25, 2009, the day Jackson died, in court this morning. Alvarez was the first security guard to arrive in Jackson's bedroom after he stopped breathing.

Here is a transcript of the 911 call:

911: Okay, how old is he?

Alvarez: He's uh, 50 years old, sir.

911: 50? Okay, he's unconscious, he's not breathing?

Alvarez: Yes, he's not breathing, sir.

911: And he's not conscious either.

Alvarez: No he's not conscious, sir

911: Ok. Alright, do you have anyone...Is he on the floor? Where's he at right now?

Alvarez: He's on the bed, sir. He's on the bed.

911: Ok, let's get him on the floor.

Alvarez: Ok

911: I'm going to help you with CPR right now, ok.

Alvarez: We need him to get...

911: We're on our way there. I'm gonna do as much as I can to help you over the phone. We're already on our way. Did anybody see him?

Alvarez: Yes. We have a personal doctor here with him, sir.

911: Oh, do you have the doctor there?

Alvarez: Yes, but he's not responding to anything. To no, no....he's not responding to the CPR, to anything.

911: Oh, okay. Well, we're on our way there. If your guy is doing CPR and you're instructed by a doctor, you're a higher authority than me if he's there on the scene. Did anybody witness what happened?

Alvarez: Um no, just the doctor, sir. The doctor's been the only one here.

911: Okay, so did the doctor see what happened?

Alvarez: Um, um. Doctor, did you see what happened, sir?

(unintelligible from background)

Alvarez: Sir, if you just...if you can, please...

911: We're on our way, we're on our way. I"m just passing these questions on to our paramedics while they are on their way, sir.

Alvarez: Thank you, sir. He's pumping...he's pumping his chest but he's not responding to anything, sir. Please.

911: Okay, okay, we're on our way. We're less than a mile away. We'll be there shortly.

Alvarez: Thank you, sir. Thank you.

911: Okay, sir. Call us back if you need more help. Thank you.

Alvarez: Yes, sir.
