Jackson had been CPR trained and picked up “Annie are you OK?” after learning to first check the victim for responsiveness.

Check out the clip below from the ABC special, “BAD25,” celebrating the 25th anniversary edition reissue of Jackson’s seventh studio album, “Bad:” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_4mUH_TwsEE&feature=plcp.“Annie’s” a “Smooth Criminal!”
