The fall reportedly resulted in an intracranial hemorrhage, or bleeding in the brain, causing the actor to slip into a coma. Coleman was on life support in very critical condition at the Utah Valley Regional Medical Center and he died shortly thereafter. According to, Coleman's wife, Shannon Price, made the decision to take the actor off life support early in the morning, leading to his 12:05 p.m. MST death.

    Previously, Gary Coleman dead rumors circulated on February 26, 2010, following reports he had been rushed to a hospital after suffering a seizure. According to, Gary Coleman was not dead, however he did suffer a seizure while filming on the set of The Insider. Dr. Drew Pinsky, who was on set at the time, reportedly helped Coleman until emergency responders arrived.
