Michael Jackson Dies at age 50

Michael Jackson dies at the age of 50 at LA hospital of a heart attack. He was found unresponsive at his home and brought to the hospital where he finally is now at rest.

His music and talent will surely be missed.

Probably no celebrity has been as revered and reviled over the past 40 years as Jackson, 50, who died Thursday in Los Angeles. The troubled, reclusive star was rushed to UCLA Medical Center by paramedics responding to a call from his home at about 12:30 p.m.

Jackson had been scheduled next month to begin the first of 50 sold-out concerts at London’s O2 Arena, a testament to his enduring popularity with fans around the world, a love affair that reached a peak on that March evening 26 years ago.
