In the latest health scare for ailing former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, doctors in a prison hospital used a defibrillator twice after they could not find a pulse, the Associated Press reported on Monday.
Mubarak has been slipping in and out of consciousness, and is suffering from high blood pressure, depression and breathing difficulties, the AP reported. This comes just days after the 84-year-old was convicted of failing to prevent the killing of protesters in the mass uprising that ended his three-decade rule last February. He was sentenced to life in prison and has been held in the intensive care ward of the prison hospital since June 2.
