Tom Petty to be removed from life support, TMZ reports
UPDATE: TMZ reports, “after Petty got to the hospital he had no brain activity and a decision was made to pull life support.”
Tom Petty, 66, was rushed to the hospital Sunday night after he was found unconscious according to TMZ.
The entertainment site is reporting that Petty was not breathing and in full cardiac arrest. EMTs worked to revive him and were able to get a pulse, but TMZ sources reported the singer was on life support at the hospital. Hours later, it was updated that he was determined to have no brain activity, and the decision was made to remove life support.
Petty just wrapped a huge tour, which included a stop at Sprint Center on June 2.
The LAPD clarified to media outlets later Monday afternoon that the singer was still clinging to life, although he is not expected to live through the day.
Petty leaves behind his wife Dana, daughters Adria and Kimberly, and more than 40 years of music.
