Police believe Bob Saget hit his head on bathroom floor: report

Authorities investigating Bob Saget’s death believe the ‘Full House’ star collapsed in his hotel bathroom and hit his head on the marble floor – before falling into bed, lose consciousness and die, according to a report.

The 65-year-old actor died on January 9 after sustaining a “blunt-force traumatic brain injury” at the Ritz-Carlton Orlando Grande Lakes in Florida, an autopsy has revealed.

He suffered skull fractures so severe that a doctor would have assumed they could have been caused by a fall from several stories or a baseball bat attack.

Investigators now believe Saget lost consciousness in the bathroom, fell backwards onto the marble floor and got his head stuck, People magazine reports.

He is believed to have regained consciousness and fell into bed before losing consciousness again and dying, according to the magazine.

Saget’s time of death was estimated at around 4 a.m., about 12 hours before his body was found, People said.

“This is definitely an unusual case. There are still a lot of unanswered questions,” an Orange County sheriff’s deputy told the outlet.

When he arrived at the posh hotel, Saget was “making jokes, waving at people in the lobby,” an employee told the magazine in the latest issue.

“When people were asking for selfies, he would run around and grab their phone to take pictures with them, joking the whole time. He was a happy ball, positive energy,” the staffer said.

He was last seen on surveillance camera as he was exiting a ninth-floor elevator and walking down the long hallway to his room, People reported.
