Heart breaking news, as it is believed that Australian performer Maria Venuti has been placed in an induced coma.
This comes after she suffered a stroke in her Sydney home.
According to reports by Seven News, the 75-year-old, had the stroke at her Gladesville home on Saturday morning and was hospitalised.
On the same day, an intruder had entered her property and specialists believe that the health complication may have been triggered by the scare.
The Sydney Morning Herald reported that a 38-year-old man was arrested at her home and was instantly taken to Royal North Shore Hospital to be medically assessed.
Maria’s daughter Bianca took to social media to address the situation and asked for “prayers, mantras and good vibes for Maria over the next few days. The doctors need 24 hours to ascertain what has happened and to come to decisions on what needs to be done.”
Our thoughts go out to the family during this time.
