According to TMZ, Reports that Tom Petty had passed away were inaccurate.
They are also reporting that a chaplain has been sent to Petty’s hospital room, and the family has issued a do not resuscitate order. He is not expected to survive the day.
However he is currently clinging to life.
The inaccurate information was supplied by the L.A.P.D. and they have since apologized for the confusion.
The L.A. County Sheriff’s department is in charge of the investigation.
