Anne Heche wanted to become an organ donor. She will be taken off life support as soon as doctors determine whether her organs are suitable for transplantation.
Actress Anne Heche, who got into two accidents at once in Los Angeles last week, received injuries incompatible with life, there is no chance of her recovery. The Guardian writes about this, citing a statement released by the actress’s family through a representative.
The horrific crash involving Heche’s car was reported last week. It was noted that the actress crashed her car into the garage of a residential complex, and then into the building of the house, after which a fire broke out.
“Unfortunately, Anne Heche suffered a severe hypoxic brain injury due to an accident and remains in a critical condition in a coma. She is not expected to survive,” a spokesman for the Heche family told the publication.
