In this Dec. 20, 2013 photo, Fire Chief Darrel Fournier speaks to a reporter in Freeport, Maine.

Zeev Rotstein, the director of Tel Hashomer hospital where the comatose former Israeli prime minister Ariel Sharon is being treated, informs the media about Sharon's health condition at the hospital near Tel Aviv, Israel, Friday, Jan. 3, 2014. Rotstein says the former prime minister's already critical medical condition is deteriorating further and his life remains in danger. The 85-year-old Sharon has been in a coma for eight years after a devastating stroke incapacitated him at the peak of his political power. He was reported in "critical condition" Thursday. Rotstein says "there is a slow and gradual deterioration," with doctors now seeing not only Sharon's kidneys but other vital organs malfunctioning as well. (AP Photo/Dan Balilty)
