Capt. Steve Ruda said paramedics responded to a call at Jackson's home around 12:26 p.m. He was not breathing when they arrived.

The paramedics performed CPR and took him to UCLA Medical Center, according to The Los Angeles Times.

Family members say Jackson is reportedly in "very bad shape."

Two SUVs followed Jackson's ambulance to the hospital and we're told by eyewitnesses that about ten people emerged from the two cars when they arrived at the hospital.

An X17 photographer on the scene tells us that when he attempted to snap shots at the hospital, he was immediately accosted by one of Michael's bodyguards who grabbed him by the throat and pushed him away, yelling for him to "get away!"
