Sikh temple victim remains in coma

CREATED Aug. 30, 2012 - UPDATED: Aug. 30, 2012

OAK CREEK- The family of Sikh priest Punjab Singh says he has remained in a coma since an Aug. 5 shooting at a Wisconsin temple wounded him and three others and left six victims dead.

Singh's family told The Associated Press in an exclusive interview this week that they rushed from India to be with him after the shooting. Now they spend most of their waking hours at his hospital bedside in Milwaukee.

The three other people wounded in the rampage in Oak Creek are out of the hospital.

Singh's sons smiled Wednesday as they shared stories of their father's lifelong efforts to clothe and educate poor children in India.

Forty-four-year-old Raghuvinder Singh of New Delhi says he takes comfort in knowing his father's fate is now in God's hands.
