Michael Jackson Dies at Age 50

"My brother Michael Joseph Jackson passed away on Thursday June 25 2009 at 2.26 p.m.

"It is believed Michael Jacskon suffered cardiac arrest at his home. However, cause of death is unknown until the results of a autopsy are known.

"His personal physician, who was with him at the time, attempted to resuscitate my brother, as did the paramedics as they transported him to Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles.

"Upon arrival at approximately 1.14 p.m. a team of doctors including emergency physicians and cardiologists attempted to resuscitate him for a period more than hour — they were unsuccessful.

"Our family asks that the media respect our privacy at this tough time."

"May our love be with you Michael always. We love you."

Lt. Fred Corral of the L.A. Coroner's Office just announced on TV that Michael Jacskon was declared dead at approximately 2:26 p.m. PT after arriving at the hospital and being deemed unresponsive.

No cause of death has been determined, said Lt. Fred Corral, who added that an autopsy will likely occur tomorrow and that a cause of death could be announced as soon as Friday afternoon.

Michael Jacskon family lawyer Brian Oxman just spoke to CNN from inside the hospital and said he has met with Michael's brothers Jermaine and Randy and that "everyone is rather speechless... everyone is just very stunned at the events that have happened."

Oxman also confirmed that Michael Jacskon's sister LaToya Jacskon is at UCLA medical center and that their father, Joe Jackson, is on his way to L.A. from Las Vegas.
