Sharon rushed to intensive care unit

46 minutes ago

Former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon was rushed to the intensive care unit of a Tel Aviv hospital Wednesday to undergo a form of dialysis, a hospital spokeswoman said. Sharon's condition deteriorated significantly earlier in the week.

He has been in a coma since suffering a massive stroke Jan. 4.

Sharon's blood will be filtered to remove excess fluids that have been accumulating in his body, Shiba Hospital said in a statement. He is also receiving antibiotics intravenously to treat a bacterial infection in his blood.

Hospital spokeswoman Anat Dolev declined to answer further questions.


Apparently, the insensate mass of protoplasm that once was Ariel Sharon can be kept alive indefinitely. Who benefits?
