Anne Heche “shouldn’t survive” a car accident

Anne Heche is not expected to survive her horrific car accident.

The actress’ rep told Page Six Thursday night that she “sustained severe anoxic brain injury” as a result of the accident and “remains in a coma” at the Grossman Burn Center at West Hills Hospital and Medical Center in California.

“It has long been her choice to donate her organs,” her spokesperson said, adding that she “is being kept on life support to determine if any are viable.”

Heche’s rep thanked the actress’ fans “for their well wishes and prayers” as well as “the dedicated staff and wonderful nurses” who have cared for her since the Aug. 5 sinking.

“Anne had a big heart and touched everyone she met with her generous spirit. More than her extraordinary talent, she saw spreading kindness and joy as her life’s work — specifically moving the needle for acceptance from who you love,” her rep concluded.
