Los Angeles, July 17 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Actor Michael Clarke Duncan is now stable after a heart attack. It may be recalled that he needed to be hospitalized on the 13th of July after he suffered a heart attack. He went into cardiac arrest in the wee hours of the morning on Friday. His condition would have had worsened had his girlfriend Omarosa Stallworth not stepped in. She in fact managed to save his life when she performed CPR on him.

After his cardiac arrest, he was taken to the hospital and doctors are running a lot of tests on him, since then. According to the latest medical bulletin on the actor, the results are normal and his heartbeat is strong.

However the extent of the damage caused by the heart attack is yet to be gauged because the doctors have kept the Green Mile actor under sedatives since then. Duncan is being kept on the respirator and it is not known when the doctors would remove it.

According to the People Magazine, Duncan’s representative said that the actor is in a stable condition and “we look forward to his full recovery.”
