Michael Jackson's beleaguered physician DR. CONRAD MURRAY has been hailed a hero after he stepped in to help a woman when she passed out during a flight.
The medic, who is facing trial over allegations he administered the drug that killed the superstar last year (09), was travelling on board a plane from Houston, Texas to Phoenix, Arizona when a female passenger fainted.
Members of the cabin crew took to the loudspeaker to ask if there was a doctor onboard, and Murray stepped up to help - reportedly inserting an intravenous drip (IV) into her arm and bringing her back to consciousness after 30 minutes.
The woman was taken to hospital after the plane landed and is expected to make a full recovery, although details of her ailment were not released.
Murray's lawyer Miranda Sevcik confirmed the incident to Britain's News of the World, insisting the doctor was just doing his job. She says, "He's a good doctor and that's what good doctors do - they save people."
Murray has pleaded not guilty to a charge of involuntary manslaughter in relation to the Thriller hitmaker's death last June (09) - the star passed away after suffering a cardiac arrest brought on by a dose of powerful anaesthetic Propofol.
