CBS News Backtracks on Tom Petty Death Report, Now “Clinging to Life”

LOS ANGELES-CBS is backtracking on its initial reports that musician Tom Petty died Monday at the age of 66.

Sources tell at 10:30 Monday morning a chaplain was called to Tom Petty’s hospital room. Petty’s family reportedly has a do not resuscitate order on Tom.

The singer is not expected to live throughout the day, but he’s still clinging to life. A report that the LAPD confirmed the singer’s death is inaccurate — the L.A. County Sheriff’s Dept. handled the emergency.
