Joe Paterno in Serious Condition but Alive; Family Called to Hospital

Former Penn State Head Football Coach Joe Paterno is in serious condition according to his doctors and family. His health has taken a turn for the worse Saturday and family and friends have been summoned to the hospital.

"Over the last few days Joe Paterno has experienced further health complications," family spokesman Dan McGinn said in a brief statement Saturday to The Associated Press. "His family will have no comment on the situation and asks that their privacy be respected during this difficult time," he said.

Some early erroneous reports of his passing had been proliferated around the internet around 9:00 pm Saturday, however they are false. Paterno is still alive and fighting at this time.

According to Mark Viera of the New York Times:

Dan McGinn, the Paterno family spokesman, at 8:57 p.m. on reports about Joe Paterno's death: "Absolutely not true."

Joe Paterno, 85, was diagnosed with lung cancer in November 2011 shortly after his termination from his 46 year career at Penn State football. He has been in the hospital since January 13th receiving treatment.

UPDATE

His family released a statement Sunday morning to announce his death: "His loss leaves a void in our lives that will never be filled."

"He died as he lived," the statement said. "He fought hard until the end, stayed positive, thought only of others and constantly reminded everyone of how blessed his life had been. His ambitions were far reaching, but he never believed he had to leave this Happy Valley to achieve them. He was a man devoted to his family, his university, his players and his community."
