Charles Manson Reportedly Clinging to Life in California Hospital
Charles Manson was rushed out of prison to a California hospital, where he’s clinging to life, according to reports Wednesday night.
The 83-year-old Manson normally makes his home inside the walls of Corcoran State Prison but he was taken to a Bakersfield hospital earlier this week, sources told TMZ.
He’s surrounded by five uniformed officers as he’s wheeled on a gurney from treatment to treatment, the celebrity website reported.
“It’s not going to get any better for him,” a source said. “It’s just a matter of time (until he finally dies).”
A rep for the state Department of Corrections declined comment.
Witnesses told KGET, an NBC affiliate in Bakersfield, that Manson was spotted at Mercy Hospital in downtown Bakersfield.
Manson is serving life without parole for leading his murderous “family” on two-night killing spree that terrified Los Angeles on Aug. 9-10, 1969.
They killed actress Sharon Tate and four of her friends before slaughtering grocers Leno and Rosemary LaBianca the next night.
