Oscar Niemeyer Takes A Turn For the Worse

Oscar Niemeyer Takes A Turn For the Worse

After being hospitalized, recovering, being hospitalized again, and then making a near-full recovery (even working from his hospital bed), famed Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer has now taken a sharp turn for the worst. 

Rio de Janeiro's Samaritano Hospital reports that the 104-year old has suffered kidney failure and is bleeding from his digestive tract; he is lucid, but breathing with the aid of machines.
