Anne Heche († 53): Hollywood star dies after accident

Anne Heches wanted to donate her organs

There, doctors had been fighting for the life of the Hollywood star for days. But Anne Heche’s injuries are significant. In addition to the severe burns, her lungs were so badly damaged that she had to be operated on several times. In addition, she suffered “severe anoxic brain damage” and only regained consciousness after her death, the spokesperson told “People” magazine. Anne Heche decided long ago to donate her organs. “To determine if they are viable,” she was placed on life support. These would make her heart race, but the 53-year-old has now been officially declared dead. “Anne will be sorely missed, but she lives on through her wonderful sons, her iconic work and her passionate advocacy for others. Her courage to always stand up for her truth and spread her message of love and acceptance will continue to leave an impression sustainable behind,” the statement continued.

The actress leaves behind two sons

Anne Heche was in a relationship with American loveseat Ellen DeGeneres from 1997 to 2000. A year later, she married cinematographer Coleman Laffoon. The marriage lasted eight years and gave birth to their son Homer, who is now 20. Additionally, Heche leaves behind 13-year-old Atlas, who comes from his relationship with actor James Tupper. Traffic camera recordings show that Anne Heche was driving through the residential area at excessive speed. It was initially suspected that she might have been under the influence of drunk driving. Tests later refuted this, but cocaine and fentanyl were detected in the Emmy award winner’s blood, as confirmed by “TMZ” police.
