Report: Charles Manson Too Weak For Surgery
Charles Manson was scheduled to have surgery for intestinal bleeding Thursday night, but doctors decided he was too weak to proceed with the procedure.
According to TMZ, the former cult leader has a lesion in his intestines that is causing significant bleeding. Manson left the California State Prison in Corcoran on Tuesday and was transported to a hospital in Bakersfield that is an hour away.
Though the 82-year-old initially said no to surgery, he decided to move forward with it on Thursday night but doctors determined it was too risky by then. (RELATED: Charles Manson Hospitalized)
