Euthenasia of patients on life support
Dear Rabbi,

Supposing somebody is in a coma for a long time, let's say for three months, and the doctors advise the family members to agree that they shut down the life-sustaining measures like a breathing apparatus.
If the person could not live without this machine and the doctors know undoubtedly that there is no chance for the person to wake up from the coma is it according to noahide halacha okay to command the doctors to shut down the machines?

Where is the point when we should stop forcing somebody to live through machines?

Thank you very much.
