Bob Saget’s cause of death could take weeks to determine


It may take several weeks before Bob Saget’s cause of death is revealed.

The “Full House” comedian and star was found unconscious in an Orlando, Florida hotel room on Sunday and pronounced dead at the scene by first responders. Detectives found no signs of foul play or drug use. Now questions arise as to the death of the beloved television icon.

However, it appears that the determination may take a little while to be made correctly. Saget’s body was transported from the hotel directly to the Orange County medical examiner’s office where an autopsy will be performed. A spokesperson for the office told Fox News Digital that an official cause of death may not be available for 10 to 12 weeks or up to 120 days.

Bob Saget’s father, Benjamin Saget, died on January 30, 2007 from complications from congestive heart failure, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Dr Marc Siegel, Fox News medical analyst and professor of medicine at New York University’s Langone Medical Center, said the heart disease was familial, but added he couldn’t speculate on the exact cause of the death of Saget.

Siegel added that approximately 250,000 to 400,000 people experience sudden cardiac arrest each year in the United States.

“250,000 to 400,000 people experience sudden cardiac arrest each year in the United States. Most have underlying heart problems but may not be known. 95 percent die from it, the majority over age 65, from men, ”Siegel said.
