Charles Manson rushed to hospital
“It does happen that sometimes inmates are treated at local hospitals,” Krissi Khokhobashvili, spokeswoman for the California Department of Corrections, said Tuesday when asked about Manson’s status.
Three corrections vans were parked outside Bakersfield’s Mercy Hospital Downtown late Tuesday. Prisoners have been treated there before.
The long-haired cult leader was found guilty of ordering the murders and originally sentenced to death. But he was spared execution when California abolished the death penalty in 1972.
