Anne Heche to be taken off life support as organ donors are found – days after being declared dead following fiery crash

Anne Heche to be taken off life support as organ donors are found – days after being declared dead following fiery crash

Anne Heche will be taken off life support on Sunday so that her organs can be donated following her death after a tragic car crash.

Although Heche was declared brain dead on Friday, which California has deemed to be the day she officially died, she was kept on life support so that her organs would be viable for donation.

TMZ reported that she will be taken off life support early Sunday afternoon since an organ recipient was found.

After Heche is taken off life support, the organ retrieval and implant process will begin, according to the outlet.

The former actress had suffered an anoxic brain injury after crashing her Mini Cooper into a home, reportedly going up to 90 mph in Los Angeles on August 5.

Before the horrific wreckage that left Heche’s car in flames, the star crashed into a garage of an apartment complex.

People tried to help her, but she just drove off. She then swerved through some hedges before ultimately crashing again.

Los Angeles Police Department officials told TMZ that the actress was under the influence of cocaine and possibly fentanyl when the crash occurred.

Toxicology tests, which can take weeks to complete, must be performed to identify the drugs more clearly and to differentiate them from any medication Heche may have been given for treatment at the hospital.

She had been in a coma for a week before she had been declared dead at age 53.

A rep for Heche told TMZ: “Shortly after the accident, Anne Heche became unconscious, slipping into a coma and is in critical condition.

“She has a significant pulmonary injury requiring mechanical ventilation and burns that require surgical intervention.”

Heche’s acting career launched in the mid-1980s when she played Vicky Hudson in Another World.

She is arguably best known for her role as Patricia Campbell on the NBC drama series, The Brave, and as Dr. Amy Barnes in the film Volcano.

The actress also had recurring roles in popular shows such as Ally McBeal, Everwood, Men In Trees, All Rise, and Chicago PD.

Her movie roles include Donnie Brasco (1997), The Vanished (2020), and Thirteen Minutes (2021).

Heche also dated Ellen DeGeneres, which they got a lot of attention for.

The two were one of Hollywood’s first openly gay couples and they dated from 1997 to 2000.
