Kate Hepburn Ailing

NEW YORK () -- Film star Katherine Hepburn has been seriously ill with pneumonia and at one point had not been expected to live, a New York newspaper reported Monday.

The Daily News quoted an administrator at Lenox Hill Hospital as saying Hepburn, who was admitted under an assumed name, had now been discharged. Family members said she was now resting comfortably at her Connecticut home.

But the newspaper said it learned from hospital sources that the screeen legend, 89, had been very ill and her physicians at one point had not expected her to live.
