Jackson 'appeared underweight' doctor's trial told

The first paramedic to reach Michael Jackson's bedroom on the night he died has told a jury that the information he received from the physician charged over the singer's death did not add up.

Richard Senneff told the court in Los Angeles that Dr Conrad Murray said Jackson was not being treated for any specific condition and that he had only given Jackson the sedative Lorazepam.

Mr Senneff said that did not seem right because the singer appeared to be underweight, and there was a medical drip and stand nearby.

He was told the treatment Michael Jackson was receiving was for ''dehydration and exhaustion''.

Dr Murray denies a charge of involuntary manslaughter and the trial continues.
