Martin Lawrence was breathing without a ventilator as he continued his recovery from a coma triggered by a weight-loss jog in summer heat.

The actor, who had been near death after suffering heat exhaustion and hyperthermia Aug. 22, was "alert and responding to commands," according to a statement from his publicist, Kim Jones.

"He's doing great," she said Tuesday. The actor's prognosis was changed from guarded to good, and Lawrence was listed in serious but stable condition.

Lawrence, 34, was trying to lose weight for a movie role when he went running near his home in 100-degree weather. His girlfriend found him collapsed on the doorstep and called 911.
