    I'm actually staying away from looking up updates because the last I heard he was still alive and I'd like to keep it that way.
    It's silly to hope that he may recover but I'm hoping.

    This is tragic. I greatly enjoyed Petty's music when I was little.

    Death appears to be imminent if it has not already arrived. RIP Tom.

    Either way, it don't look good.

    Really sad, here.

    I suspect it's more of a Carrie Fisher type situation. Either that or someone risked a severe HIPAA violation by leaking info that maybe had not yet been authorized by the family or representatives. I mean, hope for the best, but I've not much of it, sadly.

    CBS Erroneously Reports Tom Petty’s Death, Setting Off an Outpouring

    The news ricocheted around the web immediately: CBS News was reporting that Tom Petty was dead.

    It kicked off widespread reaction and remembrances on Monday, with star singers like John Mayer, Shania Twain and Jon Bon Jovi all paying tribute to Mr. Petty on Twitter.

    It soon emerged, however, that the news was premature.

    For sure. A good man gone too soon..... and many other lives lost before they should have, also. It has felt like s very long and draining day of sadness all around.

    RIP Tom Petty. you will live on through your music.

    It surely would be wonderful if he recovers, but after the reports that are already out, it doesn't sound like that is likely.

    How could this happen - the false report of his death? Someone at the hospital overheard talk about "the plug being pulled", mistakenly thought it had already happened and and reported it to TMZ would be one explanation I'm just very surprised that CBS went ahead with the report of his death based on the TMZ story.

    TMZ seems to be like The Enquirer. A lot of what they publish is true but a certain percentage of it just might not be true. There are time the Enquirer will say within a story that the source passed a lie detector test. I don't think TMZ administers lie detector tests to their sources.


    By the way, plugs are not usually "pulled" quite that fast. Brain scans and other tests are performed. Usually family members come to say their goodbyes. Sometimes the patient is an organ donor.

    I thought I heard his wife say he had "hepatitis for years" during the 911 call. http://www.tmz.com/2017/10/02/tom-pe...t-most-popular

    Neither his wife or the other person present knew CPR. Always a good thing to learn. You can never know when you'll need it.

    Gosh, the wife sounds like she was out of it completely.

    Imagine you are in his situation and the only 2 people around are incapable of handling a 911 call much less performing CPR.
