Gary Coleman dies at age 42 from an Intracranial Bleed
Former child actor, Gary Coleman, passed away on May 28th, 2010 from an intracranial hemorrhage. Two days earlier he was rushed to the hospital after suffering a fall where he hit his head. It has been reported that he had an initial lucid interval and then slipped into a coma and he never regained consciousness. He was best know for his role as Arnold on the TV show “Diff’rent Strokes” where his famous catch phrase was “What-“chu” talkin’ ‘bout Willis?” Throughout his life he was plagued by issues with his health, finances, public and personal life. His past medical history includes kidney disease, two renal transplants, heart surgery, pneumonia, and a seizure earlier this year.
Anyone willing to take a guess which kind of intracranial hemorrhage he had?
