It seems he’s only mostly dead. Mostly dead is slightly alive.
Mubarak, 84, has apparently suffered numerous strokes and heart failure. He was moved late Tuesday to a military hospital from the prison hospital where he was being treated.
He is now said to be on life support.
Mubarak’s health has been on the decline since 3 p.m. local time (9 a.m. EDT), according to his lawyers. He suffered at least two strokes and his heart had to be restarted with a defibrillator.
“He is in really bad shape,” said one U.S. official.
An 18-day revolt in Egypt ended Mubarak’s 30-year reign on February 11 of last year, igniting political turmoil. Earlier this month, he was sentenced to life in prison.
