Lata Mangeshkar's condition critical, slowly improving: Sources

Legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar, who has been admitted to the Intensive Care Unit of a hospital in Mumbai after complaining of breathing difficulty, is still in a "critical" condition but is "slowly improving", hospital sources said.

The 90-year-old Lata was admitted to the Breach Candy Hospital in the early hours of Monday where Dr. Patit Samdhani is treating her.

"She is critical but her condition has slowly improved. She is still in the hospital," a hospital insider told.

However, the veteran singer's PR team in a statement on Tuesday said she was "stable".

"Her parameters are good. Honestly speaking, she has fought so well that she is coming out of this setback. Being a singer, her lung capacity has pulled her through. Truly a fighter. We will update everyone when Lata ji gets discharged and comes home. (We) request that we give family the space they deserve at the moment," the statement read.
