Former teen heartthrob actor Corey Haim died early Wednesday morning from an apparent drug overdose. Now more details are emerging of the last hours before Haim’s tragic death.
According to the Los Angeles Police Department, Corey Haim collapsed shortly after midnight Wednesday morning in the bedroom of his mother’s apartment in Hollywood. Haim had reportedly been battling flu-like symptoms for several days before he died.
Haim reportedly collapsed in front of his mother, who called 911 immediately. Haim was still alive when paramedics arrived but very weak. Haim was rushed to St. Joseph’s hospital in Burbank, CA, but could not be saved. The 38-year-old actor was pronounced dead around 2:15 AM.
According to the LAPD, several prescription drug bottles were found in the apartment where Haim collapsed. No illegal substances, however, were reportedly found at the scene. Authorities allegedly currently believe it is likely Haim died of an accidental drug overdose but an official cause of death will not be determined until after an autopsy is performed and toxicology tests completed.
The LAPD has reportedly concluded their investigation into Corey Haim’s death and the case is now in the hands of the Los Angeles Coroner’s Department.
