Actor Tom Sizemore's doctors have reportedly told his family to prepare for end-of-life decision after his condition has failed to improve. The Saving Private Ryan and Heat star collapsed at his Los Angeles home, on February 18, and became unconscious.
Sizemore's agent, Charles Lago released a statement on Monday, saying the actor, who played the role of Sergeant Horvath in the 1998 Steven Spielberg film, had suffered a brain aneurism "that occurred as a result of a stroke"
"Since that day, Tom has remained in critical condition, in a coma and in intensive care," Lago said, according to ABC News. The agent continued:
"Today, doctors informed his family that there is no further hope and have recommended end of life decisions. The family is now deciding end of life matters and a further statement will be issued on Wednesday.
"We are asking for privacy for his family during this difficult time and they wish to thank everyone for the hundreds of messages of support, and prayers that have been received. This has been a difficult time for them."
