SANTA MARIA, CALIF. — A controversial blood circulation machine was delivered to Michael Jackson's (search) Neverland Valley Ranch, a source close to FOX News said.
According to Jackson confidant comedian Dick Gregory (search), the controversial blood machine squeezes the legs and allows the heart to rest for a second or two. Gregory said the machine was invented at Harvard University and is used in Japan, but is prohibited by U.S. hospitals. The machine is not approved by the Food and Drug Administration (search), Gregory said.
The machine was delivered Saturday evening around 6:15 p.m. PST. FOX News has obtained exclusive video of a "Global Cardio Care" van leaving Neverland, escorted by Jackson security around the same time.
