Michael Jackson dies at age 50
On Thursday, the 25th of June, 2009, music legend and King of Pop Michael Jackson died at the young age of 50, shocking and devastating all.
While exact causes of the star’s death are not known, it is being said that he suffered from cardiac arrest, and that when the Los Angeles Fire Department were called to his home at roughly 12:30 PM, he was no longer breathing. After attempting to revive him with CPR, he was rushed to the UCLA Medical Center, but was declared dead soon thereafter.
Michael Jackson had been preparing for what was to be one of his great comebacks - his upcoming tour was much discussed in the news for months, and he was in Los Angeles rehearsing for the shows at the time of his unfortunate death. He was set to perform 50 shows in London, beginning on July 13th.
Michael Jackson is survived by three children; Prince Michael Jackson, 12; Paris Michael Katherine Jackson, 11; and Prince Michael Jackson II, 7.
After a long and amazing career full of record-breaking albums, performances, and songs, the King of Pop will surely be missed.
