Shannon Price had legal right to pull plug

Gary Coleman’s ex-wife Shannon Price did have the legal authority to pull the plug. While Shannon did lie to the hospital that she was his wife, a statement released said:

“Mr. Coleman had completed an Advanced Health Care Directive that granted Shannon Price permission to make medical decisions on his behalf if he was unable to do so. An Advanced Health Care Directive remains in effect regardless of a patient’s marital status, unless modified by the patient. It is a private medical document which the hospital does not have permission to release. However, we received permission to confirm that the document was in effect at the time of Mr. Coleman’s death.”

Granted, this was the same Shannon Price who threw a towel at Gary from 20 feet away and told him to put pressure on his own head wound because she couldn’t deal with all the blood. This probably isn’t the best person to make important medical conditions for you. A hungry lion would have been more helpful than Shannon.
