Report also shows King Of Pop's health was fine
Further details of Michael Jackson‘s autopsy report have emerged and, according to the Los Angeles County coroner’s report, the late singer had a “strong heart” and was “a fairly healthy 50-year-old” before he died.
However, the document does reveal that Jackson had other health issues, including arthritis in the lower spine and some fingers, plus a mild plaque build-up in his leg arteries.
Most serious were his lungs, which the autopsy report said were chronically inflamed and had reduced capacity that might have left him short of breath.
However, the lung condition was not serious enough to be a direct or contributing cause of death, reports the Associated Press.
Jackson‘s death was ruled as homicide caused by a powerful anaesthetic in August.
“His overall health was fine, the results are in normal limits,” said Dr Zeev Kain of the University Of California, who reviewed a copy of the autopsy report.
The full autopsy report has yet to be officially released to the public.
