Dr Murray’s lawyer, Edward Chernoff, is the reported source for TMZ’s report. Chernoff explained that Dr Murray did not make the call immediately because he did not know the address of the home Michael was renting.
The home where Michael was living is in Beverly Hills very near to Sunset Boulevard, which is one of the most famous streets in the US.
According to Chernoff, Dr Murray eventually recruited someone else in the home to call 911.
In addition, when Dr Murray preformed CPR on Michael, he did so on the bed, which is not the correct procedure. CPR should be performed on the floor, a hard surface, so that the chest compressions have greater effect.
Dr Murray has claimed that Michael’s bed was firm enough to perform CPR on.
