Haim had “flu like symptoms,” prescription meds found
Sources from law enforcement have confirmed to TMZ that Corey Haim collapsed in the bedroom of his mother’s apartment, and that four prescriptions were found “nearby.”
Haim, 38, was found unresponsive at the apartment early this morning, we reported earlier. TMZ published an updated timeline of events in Haim’s collapse and death:
Sources say Haim got out of bed just before 1 AM and collapsed in front of his mother. She called 911 at 12:53 AM and Corey was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead at 2:15 AM.
The site also reports that Haim was- like Brittany Murphy- suffering from “flu-like symptoms” prior to his collapse and eventual death. Haim’s mother discussed his previous struggles with drug addiction to police on the scene, and authorities believe Haim may have succumbed to an accidental overdose. No plans have been disclosed regarding whether an autopsy will be carried out to establish cause of death.
