    FARMINGTON, CT (WFSB) — A man accused of killing his estranged wife continued to cling to life on Wednesday morning, a day after a suicide attempt.

Meanwhile, an emergency bond hearing that was supposed to happen on Tuesday for Fotis Dulos has been moved to Wednesday.

Court officials said it will move forward without him at Stamford Superior Court.

There were concerns over a bond company backing Fotis Dulos’ $6 million bond and the collateral that was put up.

If the package fell apart, he would have likely been put back into police custody.

Fotis Dulos was airlifted to a hospital in the Bronx on Tuesday afternoon after he suffered from carbon monoxide poisoning, officials confirmed.

At last check, he was in critical condition.

Investigators remained at Fotis Dulos’ home in Farmington, where the attempt happened, on Wednesday morning.

First responders rushed to the property around noon on Tuesday.

Farmington police said they first showed up there to perform a well-being check because Fotis Dulos didn’t show up to the emergency bond hearing.

When police arrived to the home on Jefferson Crossing, they saw him sitting in his car in his garage. They described him as showing signs of obvious medical distress.

Channel 3 later learned from officials that it was a suicide attempt.

Images captured by Drone 3 showed police performing CPR on Fotis Dulos for about 10 minutes in the driveway of the mansion.

After that, he was taken by ambulance to the UConn Health Center in Farmington.

Around 3:30 p.m., Fotis Dulos was airlifted to Jacobi Medical Center in Bronx, NY. The hospital is described as one of the world’s premier carbon monoxide treatment facilities.

Channel 3 also learned that Fotis Dulos’ attorney, Norm Pattis, visited the hospital on Tuesday. However, he declined to comment on his client’s condition.

The events of Tuesday unfolded three weeks after he was charged with murdering Jennifer Farber Dulos.

State police said they believe Fotis Dulos killed his estranged wife and mother of his five children inside Jennifer Dulos’ home in New Canaan.

She was reported missing on May 24, 2019.

Over the course of the investigation, Fotis Dulos has maintained his innocence.

Channel 3 continues to await an update on his condition.
