SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico, Feb. 3 (UPI) -- Comedian Luis Raul Martinez has died of pneumonia at the Pavia Hospital in his native Puerto Rico, his family said. He was 51.

Fox News Latino said Martinez's death came after he spent 18 days in the hospital's intensive care unit.

His family told the cable news channel Monday Martinez died Sunday after they authorized the hospital to disconnect him from an artificial respirator.

"Don't stop smiling, you never know who might fall in love with your smile," the comedian said in his final tweet Jan. 22.
