Michael Clarke Duncan has not yet been released from the hospital following a near-fatal heart attack on July 13, the actor's rep confirms.

While 54-year-old Duncan is no longer in critical condition, his recovery is slow-coming. The Green Mile star, who suffered a myocardial infarction, has been "moved from the Intensive Care Unit, but remains hospitalized."

"His family are firm believers in the power of prayer, and have asked that you keep him in yours during this time," his rep adds.

Duncan has his quick-thinking girlfriend, Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth, to thank for saving his life. The notorious star of The Apprentice discovered Duncan while he was unconscious and delivered CPR while waiting for paramedics to arrive.

A week after his hospitalization, doctors said he had a "very strong heartbeat" and were optimistic for his health.
