Bob Saget Cause Of Death
Saget was found unresponsive in his Florida hotel room while on a comedy tour on January 9 and pronounced dead at the scene in a case that confused his fans and loved ones. Foul play was quickly ruled out because Saget’s hotel room was described as “orderly” by investigators.
According to Saget’s family, examiners “have concluded that he accidentally hit the back of his head on something, thought nothing of it and went to sleep. No drugs or alcohol were involved.” In his own statement, the chief medical examiner of Orange and Osceola counties corroborated this claim and added that the injury was likely the result of a fall.
His family also said, “In the week’s 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.”
Saget’s widow, Kelly Rizzo Saget, emotionally recalled her final conversation with the comedian on the night of his death recently. She also commemorated a month since Saget’s death in an Instagram post with several videos of the two of them eating out together, adding that “We were in our happy place together whenever we were out at a restaurant, hotel lobby bar, or even our own kitchen when I would try out a new creation on him.”
She also wrote, “He had so many hardships over the years that he would always tell me ‘look, life is hard, we need to enjoy it as much as possible.'”
