LOS ANGELES, Oct 2 (Reuters) - U.S. rocker Tom Petty was reported on Monday to be clinging to life in a southern California hospital after conflicting reports that he had died.
CBS News had earlier reported that Petty, 66, had died after life support was switched off following cardiac arrest on Sunday. TMZ later reported, citing unidentified sources, that Petty was not expected to live much longer but was “still clinging to life.”
Representatives for the singer did not return calls for comment or confirmation on Petty’s condition.
