As the singer lay dying, Conrad Murray allegedly rushed around the house to collect vials.

New reports claim Dr. Conrad Murray filled a bag with sedatives before calling 911 when he was unable to resuscitate Michael Jackson. The allegations don't bode well for Murray, who pled not guilty to involuntary manslaughter last month. Prosecutors claim that he delivered a deadly dose of painkillers and anesthetics to the King of Pop.

Alberto Alvarez, who worked as Jackson's logistics director, told investigators that after receiving a distress call from another worker June 25, he rushed up the stairs of Jackson's home and entered a bedroom to find the singer lying on a bed with his arms outstretched and his eyes and mouth open.

At his side, Jackson's personal physician, Dr. Conrad Murray, was administering CPR with one hand.

"Alberto, Alberto, come quickly," Murray said, according to a statement obtained by The Associated Press. "He had a reaction, he had a bad reaction."

Two of the star's children, Prince and Paris, came in the room and cried as they saw Murray trying to save their father. They were quickly ushered away.

The account and other statements obtained by the AP depict a grisly scene in Jackson's room in the final minutes before paramedics arrived.
