The sad news that child actor Gary Coleman has dead is indeed True. The age of 42 actor better known for his role in The “Diff’rent Strokes” star had suffered a brain hemorrhage and died in a Utah hospital Friday.
Coleman suffered continuing ill health from the kidney disease that stunted his growth and had a host of legal problems in recent years.
Coleman suffered the hemorrhage Wednesday at his Santaquin home, 55 miles south of Salt Lake City.
A statement from the family said he was conscious and lucid until midday Thursday, when his condition worsened and he slipped into unconsciousness. Coleman was then placed on life support and eventually died at 12:05 PM MDT.
