Fidel Castro, the longtime leader of Cuba's Communist regime, may be on the verge of passing away!
"A respected doctor" named Jose Marquina tells a Cuban newspaper that the 86-year-old's health is deteriorating so badly that he can barely eat, speak or even recognize people!
After suffering from an embolic stroke, the doc isn't sure how much time Castro has left, but suggests he "could last weeks."
Even if his heart does continue to beat, Marquina says "we'll never again see him in public."
Keep in mind, the politician's party has yet to comment on or confirm the rumor, so we'll keep U updated when we know more!
