LOS ANGELES (AP) - A fire department official tells the Los Angeles Times that Michael Jackson has been rushed to the hospital.

The paramedics performed CPR and took him to UCLA Medical Center, Ruda told the paper.

L. Londell McMillan, a lawyer for Jackson, did not have any information. Messages left for other Jackson associates were not immediately returned.
