Anne Heche to be removed from life support Sunday afternoon

Anne Heche will be taken off of life support Sunday afternoon, a spokesman for the actor told NBC News.

Once Heche has been removed from life support, organ recipients have been identified and surgeons are ready to perform the implants.

Multiple organs will be transplanted, but it is not known at this time which one will be.

Heche was declared brain dead on Friday, a week after she crashed her car into a home in Los Angeles, the actor was kept on life support so that her organs could be donated.

While Anne is legally dead according to California law, her heart is still beating, and she has not been taken off life support so that One Legacy can see if she is a match for organ donation, Heche s spokesperson said at the time.

Heche had drugs in her system at the time of the crash. The police said they were closing their investigation into the incident.
