LOS ANGELES (AP) _ Michael Jackson’s 2-year-old son was treated for flu-like symptoms after being rushed to a hospital by ambulance with his father at his side, a family attorney said.

Prince Michael Joseph Jackson Jr. was examined Thursday in the emergency room at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and was treated for a viral infection accompanied by fever and dehydration, attorney Iris Joan Finsilver said on behalf of Jackson and his wife, Deborah Rowe Jackson.

``Prince was evaluated by the hospital staff and his personal pediatrician and found to be safe for discharge and home care. His doctors expect a speedy recovery from this illness at home under his parents’ care,″ the statement said.

The Jacksons also have a daughter, 10-month-old Paris Michael Katherine.
