When he arrived at the hospital, it was determined that he had no brain activity and was pulled off life support on Monday.

In a statement on behalf of Petty's family, his manager Tony Dimitriades said: "We are devastated to announce the untimely death of our father, husband, brother, leader and friend Tom Petty".
