Jayalalithaa remains in grave situation: Apollo
Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa remains in a "grave situation" despite the best efforts of doctors, Apollo Hospitals said today.

"Despite our best efforts, our beloved CM remains in a grave situation," Apollo Hospital's Joint Managing Director Sangita Reddy said in a Twitter post.

This comes barely two hours after the Hospital in an official statement had said Jayalalithaa "continues to be very critical."

Jayalalithaa, who had a cardiac arrest last evening "continues to be very critical and is on ECMO and other life support systems," Apollo Hospitals Chief Operating Officer Subbiah Viswanthan said in a statement.

"The Honourable Chief Minister is being treated and closely monitored by a team of experts," he added.

68-year-old Jayalalithaa has been put on extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), a heart assist device, and was under the watch of experts, including cardiologists.

The ailing Chief Minister had shown signs of improvement during the last few days before the setback yesterday.
