Reporter Taken Off Life Support

On Friday at a Harbor City hospital, Nguyen Huy Vu's family decided to take the 34-year-old reporter off artificial life support following a Mother's Day heart attack that had left him brain dead.

Suzie Suh filed this report at KCAL's Channel 9.

Chuyen Nguyen, Vu's father and a longtime Little Saigon community leader, said his son's body will be cremated after Catholic services.

During his career, Vu worked at OC Weekly, The Orange County Register, Seattle Times, Associated Press, Nguoi Viet and finally at the Daily Breeze, where he covered education.

He is survived by a grandmother, both parents, a younger brother and his wife of six months, Deputy Attorney General Heather Hua.
