JAMES Garner is on his way out.
Sources say the Maverick TV legend — who’s been confined to a wheelchair since a catastrophic stroke in 2008 — came close to death recently after he developed severe breathing difficulties and was rushed to the hospital.
Sources say James was stricken at his home in Brentwood, Calif.
“The poor guy is frail and barely hanging on as it is,” an insider told American tabloid the National Enquirer.
“When Jim clutched his chest and couldn’t catch his breath, he thought it was the end.
“His wife rushed him to the emergency room at St. John’s Health Center in Santa Monica. It was terrifying.”
