Bob Saget died last month as a result of an unintentional strike to the head, according to his family, who released a statement on Wednesday.
The comedian and “Full House” actor was discovered dead in a Florida hotel room on January 9th. He’d just finished a stand-up tour in the neighbourhood the night before.
The Saget family stated, “The authorities have decided that Bob died as a result of head trauma.” “They came to the conclusion that he banged the back of his head on something by mistake, didn’t think much of it, and went to sleep.” “There were no drugs or alcohol involved.”
The medical examiner’s office in Orange County, Florida, did not respond to a message left Wednesday night requesting information about their inquiry.
Authorities stated last month that Saget, 65, was discovered on a hotel bed with no evidence of foul play. After Saget failed to check out, a hotel security guard entered the room and discovered him lifeless, calling 911.
He was declared dead by deputies and paramedics in his room at the Ritz Carlton in Orlando.
Saget was best known for his roles on the sitcom “Full House” as Danny Tanner, a beloved single father, and as the wisecracking host of “America’s Funniest Home Videos.”
Saget was promoting his “I Don’t Do Negative Comedy Tour” on the road. He rejoiced online after receiving enthusiastic applause at his performances in Orlando on Friday and the Ponte Vedra Beach vacation area on Saturday.
“I’m back in comedy, just like when I was 26.” “I think I’m discovering my new voice and loving every minute of it,” he said on Instagram Saturday.
Saget’s passing elicited a flood of tributes from fans and colleagues, who remembered him as both humorous and incredibly kind.
The family claimed in the statement that they have been touched by “the overwhelming outpouring of affection from Bob’s followers” and that it has comforted them.
“As we continue to grieve together, we ask that everyone remember Bob’s love and joy, and the lessons he taught us all: to be nice to everyone, to let the people you love know you love them, and to confront difficult times with hugs and laughing,” his family stated.
Saget had three kids from a previous marriage and was married to Kelly Rizzo Saget.
Authorities stated there was “no sign of drug usage or foul play” after Saget’s autopsy was conducted on Jan. 10.
The comic did his final stand-up act outside of Jacksonville at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall the night before his death. Following the two-hour show, Saget took a picture and thanked the “very great audience,” adding, “Lots of positivity.”
