Jackson's doc requested lifesaving gear

LOS ANGELES Newly unveiled documents show that /*Dr. Conrad Murray*/ requested, but never received, certain life saving equipment before the singer's death.

The information is from e-mails and a proposed contract obtained by the Associated Press.

The documents show Murray wanted a heart resuscitation machine, plus a medical assistant.

The request was made to AEG Live, the company that organized /*Jackson's*/ tour.

Murray has pleaded not guilty to involuntary manslaughter in Jackson's death.

The King of Pop died last June after Murray administered a mixture of sedatives, including the anesthetic propofol, in an attempt to get the chronic insomniac to sleep.
