For those, who may not be aware, a defibrillator is a device that sends an electric pulse or shock to the heart in order to restore a normal heartbeat.

“There’s no more brain function,” Bush told Newsday on Thursday. ” … We are dealing with the end right now.”

The family is hoping for a miracle. The brother said to the publication that this may have been caused by a “hereditary condition or a thickening of the walls of the left ventricle.”

Before this collapse, family members told Newsday that he had no heart condition. Steve Bush said that his younger brother was without blood and oxygen to the brain for at least 45 minutes.
