Murray, who was staying with the “Thriller” singer in Los Angeles when he died last Thursday, insisted he tried his best to get help when he discovered the star in bed but was hampered by his unfamiliarity with the rented home's address, reports contactmusic.com.
According to the medic's lawyer Edward Chernoff, Murray tried to call 911 but was unable to get a line out because of security restrictions on the property's phone lines. He considered using his personal mobile phone but realised he didn't know the address and so shouted for other staff to help him.
The doctor rushed through the house and found the pop legend's chef, who alerted his security staff who then called for an ambulance.
While waiting for paramedics, Conrad, who has been criticised for not moving the singer's body from the bed onto the floor, continued to perform CPR on the star.
'Dr. Murray began performing CPR for several minutes as he tried to revive him, unsuccessfully,” said Chernoff.
'With Michael still on the bed, he put one hand under Michael's back for support and was compressing with his other hand. He continued to check the pulse, and the pulse remained,' he added.
The star was then taken to hospital and pronounced dead at 2.26 p.m.
Despite reports that Michael was addicted to prescription drugs and had been given an injection of painkiller Demerol shortly before his death, the lawyer insists his client never administered them.
'I can state unequivocally there was no Demerol. There was no Demerol administered by Dr. Murray and no one observed him using Demerol. I am not sure where that came from. I can tell you it is false,' Chernoff said.
