Well there’s no danger of us breaking this one, what with every media outlet going into meltdown at the sad news of Michael Jackson’s untimely death.
And we know it’s not strictly TV, but there’s no way we can let this one slide.
The 50-year-old singer was rushed UCLA Medical Centre last night after being found unconscious in his home.
According to local reports, Jackson died in his Holby Hills home after suffering a cardiac arrest and subsequent attempts to resuscitate him were “completely unresponsive”.
A spokesperson for the Los Angeles City Fire Department said: “The call came in because a person was not breathing.
“When the team arrived, they saw that CPR was already in progress by someone at the home. The person not breathing was transported to UCLA Medical Center and remains there.”
The star’s mother and sister, LaToya, are reportedly inside the hospital, where large crowds have gathered.
