Michael Jackson was a "fairly healthy" 50-year-old on 24 June 2009, according to an autopsy report obtained by the Associated Press. The next day, he was dead – due to the anaesthetics administered by his doctor.

The previously unreleased document confirms earlier reports that Jackson had puncture marks on his arms. The singer also had mild arthritis and lung damage, which may have left him short of breath. But the new report underlines that none of these issues was life-threatening.

Besides much-publicised cosmetic surgery, the report states that Jackson had tattooed eyebrows, lips, and a dark tattoo across the top of his balding head. Yet he was fit and well-fed. At 5'9" (175cm), the singer's 136lb (62kg) weight was within doctors' "acceptable" range.

"His overall health was fine," said Dr Zeev Kain, the University of California physician who reviewed the report for the Associated Press. "The results are in normal limits."

Jackson had scars behind his ears and beside his nostrils, likely caused by cosmetic surgery, and on his knee, probably from a medical procedure. His remaining hair, according to the report, was short and tightly-curled. The singer also had depigmentation of the skin around his face, chest, abdomen and arms, corroborating reports that he suffered from vitiligo.

The autopsy report also details medical efforts to revive Jackson. Paramedics cracked the singer's ribs during CPR, and a machine called a balloon pump was inserted into his chest as they attempted to jumpstart his heart.

As reported in August, Los Angeles coroners concluded that "acute intoxication" of Propofol, a powerful anaesthetic, led to Jackson's death. His personal physician, Dr Conrad Murray, has admitted injecting the drugs – claiming he was treating the singer for insomnia. The investigation continues.
