A sad day this morning as we learn that Beth Chapman from the series 'Dog the Bounty Hunter' has been placed in a medically-induced coma.

Chapman revealed in September 2017 that she had stage II throat cancer. She was later hospitalized back in April due to an "accumulation of fluid in her lungs", the pair explained, which caused for an emergency operation to relieve pressure.

The 51-year-old, who has had a long struggle with cancer, was admitted into the intensive care unit (ICU) at Queen's Medical Center in Honolulu.


Beth's family have asked for people to pray.

At least this is that case with Lyssa Chapman, who, while not having the best of relationships with Beth, has chose to put that behind them in this moment of crisis.

Without mentioning her mother's hospitalization, on Saturday evening, the couple's daughter Bonnie posted a sweet photo of her parents cuddling up together, captioning it with two red heart emojis. "In her case, since she is suffering from throat cancer, she might have developed an airway obstruction or pneumonia, causing breathing difficulty and decreased oxygenation leading to a medically induced coma to save her life", Dr. Akhtar tells us.


Despite the diagnosis, the Chapmans announced a new show "Dog's Most Wanted" would soon be coming to WGN America. "Sorry, that's not for me", she said.

"So I'm warning you in advance: may God have mercy on you when I catch you".
