PHOENIX, May 16 (UPI) -- The doctor charged with involuntary manslaughter in the death of Michael Jackson assisted an ill passenger aboard a Houston to Phoenix flight, TMZ.com said.

A female passenger had fainted and Dr. Conrad Murray, who was aboard the same plane Saturday, administered IV fluids, the woman told TMZ.

The woman -- described as in her 20s and traveling with a baby -- reportedly had a "very weak pulse" and was unresponsive for about a half-hour, sources told TMZ.

The victim told the entertainment news Web site, when she came to, she found Murray standing over her.

She told TMZ he told her: "You probably know me ... I was Michael Jackson's doctor."

Upon landing, the woman was treated at a Phoenix hospital and released, TMZ said.

Murray was charged in February with involuntary manslaughter for his alleged role in Jackson's June 25, 2009 death from a drug overdose. He has pleaded innocent and retains his medical license.
