Bob Saget Family Says He Died from a Brain Bleed After Hitting Head, Not a Heart Attack


We all surmised Bob Saget died from a heart attack. But that was not the case. His family has issued a statement after TMZ somehow got the official report.

Saget died from head trauma. He somehow hit his head in the hotel room and didn’t do anything about it. He went to sleep and had a brain bleed. This is a terrifying reminder that if you hit your head you must see a doctor immediately. Natasha Richardson died similarly. So did Camilla Parker Bowles’s brother, Mark Shand.

What a tragic accident. Condolences again to his family and friends.

Here’s the family statement:

“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. The authorities have determined that Bob passed away from head trauma. They 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.”

“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.”
