Bob Saget: Full House star died “accidentally” after hitting “back of his head on something”

Published on

Bob Saget, a well-known American actor and comedian, died after suffering an accidental blow to the head, his family says.

The Full House star “accidentally hit the back of his head on something, thought nothing of it and went to sleep,” according to a statement.

A toxicology report found no evidence of drugs or alcohol in his death, they noted.

Last month, Saget, 65, was discovered dead in his hotel room at the Ritz Carlton in Orlando, Florida.

“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 statement read.

“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.”

Saget had three daughters from a previous marriage and had been married to Kelly Rizzo Saget since 2018.

On the evening of January 9, hotel personnel discovered him motionless in his bed, and paramedics confirmed him dead at the spot.

Authorities indicated at the time that the death of the Philadelphia native was not being investigated as suspicious.

His funeral, which was attended by several famous celebrities, took place in California last month.

Saget, a veteran stand-up comedian, had recently begun a new tour across the United States, appearing in Jacksonville, Florida the day before his death.

Although many comedians admired him for his caustic and frequently cutting performance, he was best known in the United States for his role in the heartwarming sitcom Full House, in which he co-starred with John Stamos and fellow comic Dave Coulier.

In recent years, he gained popularity among younger generations as the narrator of the hit show How I Met Your Mother and for his cameo appearances on the TV series Entourage as a highly fictionalized version of himself.
