"I recalled that after ... a few breaths that he [Conrad Murray] breathed into Mr. Jackson, he came up and he said this is the first time that I do mouth to mouth, but I have to, he's my friend," said Alberto Alvarez, a former bodyguard to Michael Jackson
After Jackson was rushed to the UCLA Medical Center and declared dead, Murray told Alvarez, "I wanted him to make it. I wanted him to make it."
Murray Asked Bodyguard to Dispose of Vials, IV Bag With Propofol
Alvarez testified that Murray asked him to help discard vials and an IV bag containing propofol before first responders arrived at the mansion.
"While I was standing at the foot of the bed, he [Conrad Murray] reached over and grabbed a handful of vials and said, 'Here, put these in a bag,'" Alvarez said.
Alvarez didn't question Murray's requests.
"I thought Conrad Murray had best intentions for Mr. Jackson," Alvarez said. "I thought we were packing, getting ready to go to the hospital."
The saline bag had a bottle in it and a "milky white substance," Alvarez said. The substance was propofol, the powerful anesthetic that was found in Jackson's system at the time he died. Murray administered the drug to Jackson to help him sleep.
Murray's lawyers contend that he only administered 25 mg of propofol to Jackson on the day he died. They argue that Jackson himself took a sedative and an additional dose of propofol without his doctor's knowledge that created a "perfect storm" that killed the king of pop.
Alvarez said that in the midst of calling 911, he and Murray moved Jackson's body to the floor from the bed. A long, clear tube hanging from the IV stand was still connected to Jackson's leg. Murray removed the tube, Alvarez said.
