Conrad Murray Tends To Woman On Plane

Michael Jackson's much-maligned doctor Conrad Murray helped improve his tarnished reputation by coming to the aid of a fellow passenger on a flight from San Francisco to Minneapolis Sunday morning.

Murray was on his way to Boston when his connecting flight pilot announced that a passenger was in distress. Murray, with the aid of another doctor, stabilized the passenger until the flight landed and he was treated by paramedics. Witnesses told Fox News reporters Sunday that the man was just a little dizzy and, after being treated by paramedics, was determined to need no further medical assistance.

This is not the first time Murray has come to a passenger's aid. Last May, Dr. Murray treated a woman who fainted on a US Airways flight.

Murray has been charged with involuntary manslaughter after he allegedly administered a lethal dose of propofol, lorazepam and midazolam to Michael Jackson the night he died of cardiac arrest in 2009. Murray's license has been suspended until the conclusion of his trial.

Murray's airline heroics come after prosecutors charged Friday that the doctor was distracted by his love life as his most famous patient lay dying. Court documents showed that Murray was calling or texting with three different women in the final hours of Jackson's life.
