Jeff Conaway To Be Taken Off Life Support
Radar Online exclusively reported today that Grease star Jeff Conaway’s family has decided to take him off life support. A source tells Radar that once the breathing tube is removed, doctors will not attempt to revive Conaway. “Doctors advised the family that Jeff has had no brain function since he was brought into the hospital,” the source told the site. “The feeding tube has already been removed. The ventilator which is breathing for Jeff, will be removed sometime this afternoon.”
Conaway, 60, was rushed to the hospital last Wednesday after suffering what many thought to be a prescription drug overdose. Dr. Drew Pinsky, who treated Conaway on Celebrity Rehab, later said the star was suffering from pneumonia and sepsis.
