Next 24 hours will be key for stricken former WFAA8 reporter Bert Lozano

The family of former WFAA8 reporter Bert Lozano offered an update on his condition Monday night.

After suffering an apparent heart attack Sunday morning, he remains "heavily sedated under constant care," according to a family statement sent by Chris Heinbaugh, who worked with Lozano at WFAA8 before leaving the station to become former Dallas Mayor Tom Leppert's chief of staff. "There are many positive signs, but the next 24 hours will prove critical to determining his condition and his path to recovery."

The Lozano family also expressed gratitude "for the outpouring of love and prayerful support from his many friends here in Texas, his home, and across the country. Thank you from the bottom of our heart. We ask now that everyone please respect our family's privacy. We will keep you posted on Bert's progress."

Lozano, who left WFAA8 in February 2007 after a three-year stay, works in the Dallas office of the Weber Shandwick public relations firm.
