Authorities have released new details about Bob Saget’s sudden death as loved ones and fans await an official cause.
The comedian and actor was found dead on Sunday at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Orlando, TMZ reported. He was 65 years old.
Although the findings of a postmortem examination have yet to be revealed, Orlando’s Fox 35 News obtained a 911 call made to the Orange County Sheriff’s Office by hotel security.
The caller reported there was “an unresponsive guest in a room.”
Dispatch prompted for more information about the decedent’s condition.
“Not responsive, not breathing, no pulse,” said the caller.
A police report stated that the hotel guest, later identified as Saget, was “cold to the touch, yellow, and clammy,” according to Fox 35.
Saget’s relatives contacted the Ritz-Carlton and requested a welfare check after Saget failed to check out of the hotel earlier on Sunday. According to TMZ, the actor was on a comedy tour scheduled to continue into May.
Law enforcement in Orange County previously stated that “detectives found no signs of foul play or drug use in this case,” according to TMZ.
Hotel security found Saget at around 4:00 p.m. He was last seen entering his room at around 2:17 a.m., hours before he was expected to check out. When security entered his room after knocking several times, the lights were turned off. Saget was lying face-up on his bed with his left arm over his chest and his right arm on the bed.
He was officially declared dead at 4:17 p.m., according to Fox 35.
“The room itself was orderly with items owned by Mr. Saget on the nightstand, television stand, closet, and bathroom,” authorities stated in the incident report.
Authorities said they’re also looking into revelations Saget made a week before his death when the actor discussed his recent bout with COVID-19, according to TMZ.
Bob Saget was best known for his wholesome role as Danny Tanner on “Full House” and as the host of “America’s Funniest Home Videos” during the 1990s. His adult-themed comedy also garnered a large fan base, including his most recent tour, “Bob Saget: I Don’t Do Negative Tour.”
Fans and co-stars alike took to social media following news of Saget’s death.
“He had a big, big heart and a wonderfully warped comic mind,” tweeted fellow actor and comedian Jim Carrey. “He gave the world a lot of joy and lived his life for goodness’ sake.”
“My whole heart. Bob was my absolute everything,” Saget’s wife, Kelly Rizzo, told People in a statement. “I am so completely shattered and in disbelief. I am so deeply touched by the outpouring of love and tribute from our friends, family, his fans, and his peers.”
The Orange County Medical Examiner’s Office stated a press statement would follow their findings, which could take 10 to 12 weeks.
