Lawyer says Jackson doctor sought CPR machine

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- An attorney for the promoter of Michael Jackson's final concerts says the singer's personal physician requested life-saving equipment just days before the pop superstar's death.
Kathy Jorrie, who works for concert giant AEG Live, testified Wednesday at the involuntary manslaughter trial of Dr. Conrad Murray that she questioned some of the doctor's requests, which included the possibility of hiring a second doctor to assist him.
Jorrie says Murray told her that Jackson was "perfectly healthy" and in excellent condition in the days before Jackson's death.
She says Murray asked for a CPR machine in case one wasn't available at the concert venue at London's O2 arena.
Murray has pleaded not guilty.
