MALIBU, Calif. – Singer Tom Petty was rushed to the hospital after being found unconscious and in critical condition at his California home, according to TMZ.

CBS News had reported that Petty had died on Sunday, but TMZ is reporting that the 66-year-old singer is still clinging to life.

CBS has updated its story to say that the LAPD cannot confirm Petty’s death.

The family has a do not resuscitate order on Petty, who is not expected to live throughout the day, but is still clinging to life, according to TMZ.

The best-selling artist is known for several hit rock songs including “Free Falling,” “Mary Jane,” “American Girl,” “I Won’t Back Down” and “Refugee.”

Petty just wrapped up a tour ending at the Hollywood Bowl late last Monday, according to TMZ.

He became famous with Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers in 1978 with “Breakdown.”
