Actor who suffered heart attack last week is on the road to recovery
Duncan, 52, suffered a massive heart attack this past Friday but is showing signs of progress. He is breathing above the respirator in a sign he's building strength, sources told TMZ.
He has a “very strong heartbeat” and “is fighting like a mutha,” the sources reportedly said.

Paramedics responded to a 911 call around 2 a.m. Friday and rushed Duncan from his house in Woodland Hills, Calif., to a nearby hospital, sources told the Daily News.
Duncan's reality TV star girlfriend Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth found the ailing actor and performed CPR until medics arrived, possibly saving his life, TMZ said.
They began dating two years ago after meeting in a local supermarket.
