We’ve got some sad news to report this morning. All over the internet there have been rumors that former child-star Gary Coleman has died, which is untrue but unfortunately his health is in grave danger. According to the Associated Press, the actor is currently in the hospital listed under critical condition after taking a serious fall earlier this week.
The incident took place in Utah at Coleman’s home, which is located 55 miles south of Salt Lake City. Friday morning a statement was released from Utah Valley Regional Medical Center stating the actor’s condition on behalf of his family. They said that he’s gotten worse since the initial slip and fall that caused him to lose consciousness. At the moment he’s on life support after suffering an intracranial hemorrhage.
Because of the delicacy of the situation the actor hasn’t had any surgery to alleviate the pain. Coleman is 42 years old and best known for his stint on the TV show “Diff’rent Strokes,” which aired from 1978 to 1986. His family is asking that fans pray for him because he’s suffering from a “serious medical problem.”
Let’s keep Gary in our thoughts and send out well wishes to him and his family during this difficult time.
