Terri Schiavo's Feeding Tube Removed
- The feeding tube that has kept a severely brain-damaged Florida woman alive for the past 15 years was removed Friday afternoon.
An attorney for Terri Schiavo's (search) parents, who have led the fight for more than a decade to keep their daughter alive, told FOX News at around 3:20 p.m. EST that the tube had been removed.
A statement on Schiavo's parents' Web site read: "Terri's nutrition and hydration have now been withheld from her. It is unclear if the port that accommodates her feeding tube has been surgically removed as her family was ordered to leave her room."
