Sizemore, 61, collapsed at home around 2 a.m. Saturday in Los Angeles, according to the Associated Press. His manager, Charles Lago, said when Sizemore arrived at the hospital, doctors found that he had suffered from a brain aneurysm “that occurred as a result of a stroke.”

Lago said that Sizemore’s family was advised by doctors to make “end-of-life decisions.”

“The family is now deciding end-of-life matters and a further statement will be issued on Wednesday,” Lago said. “We are asking for privacy for his family during this difficult time and they wish to thank everyone for the hundreds of messages of support, and prayers that have been received. This has been a difficult time for them.”

An aneurysm is a bulge in an artery that can suddenly leak or rupture, according to WebMd.

The 61-year-old actor, known for his roles as Sgt. Horvath in “Saving Private Ryan,” has been in “critical condition, in a coma and in intensive care,” his manager said.
