Gary Coleman's will demanded 15 days of life support

Court documents revealed that Gary Coleman, who died last month in Provo, Utah after suffering a brain hemorrhage, had stated in his will that he be kept on life support for 15 days unless he was in a reversible coma, CNN reports. The actor’s ex-wife, Shannon Price, however, took Coleman off life support one day after his coma. A spokesman for the Utah Medical Association said that family members’ decisions have more weight than what’s written in a will, explaining that living wills are involved only when a patient is already going to die. Coleman’s remains are being kept in a Utah mortuary, awaiting a directive from a state district judge.
