Tom Petty, best known as the frontman of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, is currently “clinging to life,” reports the LAPD.

Petty was rushed to the hospital Sunday night after he was found unconscious and not breathing, in full cardiac arrest. His condition was critical from the moment he was found, according to TMZ. Multiple sources reported his passing this afternoon but the LAPD told TMZ that the news was premature. The news site was “told the family has a do not resuscitate order on Tom.
