Michael Jackson’s chief of security, Faheem Muhammad, took the stand yesterday (September 28) and testified that the music icon’s two eldest children, Prince and Paris, were witnesses to the frantic final moments of their father’s life two years ago.

 

Muhammad claims that while Dr. Conrad Murray was desperately trying to breathe life into the King of Pop, Paris was "on the ground, balled up crying," and Prince "was shocked and slowly crying."

 

The stocky bodyguard said he escorted the two young children from the room as his fellow bodyguard Alberto Alvarez rushed to help administer CPR to Jackson.

 

According to TMZ, once Jackson was pronounced dead by his lead assistant, Michael Amir Williams, that’s when Muhammad made the decision not to let Dr. Murry back into the home.

 

On just the second day of the manslaughter trial the singer’s children have become a significant part of the proceedings. As previously reported, Prince may have to testify to the days events since the prosecution has listed him as a witness to the alleged crime. The 14-year-old has told family members he’s nervous about taking the stand in fear he might mess things up.
