Michael Jackson has died of a cardiac arrest.
The singer was taken to an LA hospital after having a heart attack.
The Los Angeles Times reports that Michael was not breathing when paramedics arrived at his home.
Captain Steve Ruda told the paper paramedics responded to a call at the star’s home around 8:26pm.
They performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation on him and took him to UCLA Medical Center.
The paper says Michael fell into a coma before he arrived.
His sister La Toya was apparently seen running into the hospital sobbing.
A UCLA spokesman says that due to patient confidentiality, it can’t comment on or confirm the reports.
