"Dog the Bounty Hunter" star Beth Chapman remains in the hospital after her husband shared a report that she had been placed in a medically induced coma amid cancer treatment. 

Her family members "have been with her at the hospital," where she remains in "very serious" condition, Chapman's lawyer, Andrew Brettler, told USA TODAY on Monday. Husband and "Bounty Hunter" co-star Duane Chapman asked fans Sunday to pray for his wife. 

According to an article from Hawaii News Now that Duane shared on his official Twitter and Facebook pages, the family told the newscasters in a statement Saturday that she had been to the Intensive Care Unit at Queen's Medical Center in Hawaii and is now in a coma. 

"Please say your prayers for Beth right now thank you love you," Duane wrote early Sunday morning, before sharing the article.

Beth was originally diagnosed with Stage 2 throat cancer in September 2017; it returned in late November. The reality star began chemotherapy in December 2018, Brettler confirmed to USA TODAY at the time.
