(Newser) – It's make-up-your-own-punchline time. When a woman aboard a flight to Phoenix awoke after a half-hour fainting spell, she heard the doctor helping her say, "You probably know me. ... I was Michael Jackson's doctor." None other than Conrad Murray himself came to the unconscious woman's aid on the plane with an IV from the plane's medical bag, reports TMZ.

The flight got diverted to New Mexico, and the woman was transferred to a hospital there, reports AP. She tells TMZ she has a message for Murray: "Thank you for helping me even without knowing me. Thank you."
