LOS ANGELES -

A paramedic says the day Michael Jackson died, he looked like a person "at the end stage of a long disease process."

Richard Senneff was among the rescuers who responded to the home Jackson was renting on June 25, 2009. He says Jackson seemed to be terminally ill - and that his hands, feet and lips were blue - an indication the pop star was already dead and hadn't been breathing for a while.

Senneff says he found Dr. Conrad Murray "very busy" trying in vain to revive Jackson. He also said he found an IV pole, oxygen tanks and a nightstand with several medicine bottles. The paramedic testified - as he did at Murray's criminal trial - that the doctor never mentioned he had given Jackson the anesthetic propofol.

Jackson's mother Katherine is suing AEG Live, claiming the concert company was wrong to have hired Murray as Jackson's physician as he prepared for a series of London shows.
