"It was our beloved mother and grandmother's wish to die naturally and without any kind of life prolonging intervention," the family said.

"I understand if your facility is not willing to do that," Halvorson said. "Give the phone to a passer by. This woman is not breathing enough. She is going to die if we don't get this started, do you understand?"
