Alyssa Milano’s Uncle Mitch is on life support and his condition is still touch-and-go following last week’s heart attack that led to a car crash.
Mitchell Carp, 63, is clinging to life, the actress and activist said in a TikTok video updating fans on her relative’s condition and giving a few more details about the accident.
“Uncle Mitch is still in and out of consciousness,” Milano said. “He’s on life support. My brother went there yesterday and played him some oldies, and his whole body started moving. So, he really loved that. The nurses at the UCLA Medical Center and the doctors are taking such incredible care of Uncle Mitch, but he’s got a long road ahead of him.”
He also may have an infection, she said, since he’d had a 103-degree fever as well.
Last week she had revealed the accident that occurred as he drove a 2020 Ford Edge SUV on a Los Angeles freeway. It happened as he was taking her to the doctor for ringing in her ears, remnants of her battle with COVID-19.
“He lost consciousness with his foot on the gas, and it was some of the most horrifying moments of my life,” Milano said. “I got the car to stop, and there were some incredibly kind people who stopped to help me through the next 40 minutes, so I feel like I need to say a special thank you to these incredible good Samaritans who stopped to help.”
She urged everyone to “be one of those good Samaritans” and stop to help people in trouble, as well as get certified in CPR.
“You could be called upon to save a life at some point, and it’s really, really valuable to know how to do that,” she said.
As for her uncle, “he is a fighter,” Milano said. “Uncle Mitch is a fighter. And the doctors say every day is a miracle that he still hangs on.”
