Maria Venuti Suffers Stroke After Terrifying Incident
Singer and avid thespian Maria Venuti is in an induced coma after suffering a stroke during a terrifying incident at her home on Saturday morning.
The actor was in her Gladesville home alone at about 8.30am when she was disturbed by a man who allegedly started harassing her weeks ago.
Venuti managed to sound an alarm, alerting police, before collapsing inside her home.
Venuti's close friend and Australian Ladies Variety Association President, Susie Smither took to social media to update friends.
She said Maria remained unconscious in Royal North Shore Hospital, with her daughter Bianca by her side.
Our thoughts are with her friends and family at this difficult time.
