“America’s Dad” Bob Saget was suddenly found dead a month ago in his Florida hotel room after a stand-up show. And Saget’s family finally revealed that the actor died from accidental head trauma.
Bob Saget dies due to “blunt head trauma”
When Saget was first found, officials on the scene said it didn’t seem like there was any foul play or drugs involved. And according to Dr Joshua Stephany, chief medical examiner, no illicit drugs or toxins were found in his system.
Stephany then further stated that the beloved comedian died from “blunt head trauma” and was an accident.
“His injuries were most likely incurred from an unwitnessed fall,” Stephany said.
His family wanted to share the news
On Wednesday, Bob Saget’s family released a statement after confirmation of his cause of death was shared. Saget “accidentally hit the back of his head on something, thought nothing of it and went to sleep.”
“In the weeks since Bob’s passing, we have been overwhelmed with the incredible outpouring of love from Bob’s fans, which has been a great comfort to us and for which we are eternally grateful,” the family said.
“Now that we have the final conclusions from the authorities’ investigation, we felt it only proper that the fans hear those conclusions directly from us.”
Bob Saget is still being loved and remembered by his friends and family. And as the family can now begin to heal from the shock, they thank everyone for their support.
“As we continue to mourn together, we ask everyone to remember the love and laughter that Bob brought to this world, and the lessons he taught us all: to be kind to everyone, to let the people you love know you love them, and to face difficult times with hugs and laughter,” his family said.
