Anne Heche, 53, Has Life Support Turned Off 9 Days After Cocaine and Alcohol-fueled Accident Left Her Brain Dead; Her Organs Have Been Matched With a Recipient

Actress Anne Heche has been taken off life support after health officials found suitable organ recipients.

Heche, 53, spent a week on life support following an August 5 crash in which she swerved her blue Mini Cooper into a Los Angeles home, and suffered a severe anoxic brain injury and lung damage from smoke inhalation.

She was pronounced brain dead on Friday, one week after the crash, which in California means a person has died, though she was kept on life support to preserve her organs while authorities worked to find people who could use them.
