Actor and comedian Bob Saget was “not breathing” and had “no pulse” when he was found in his hotel room, according to audio from the 911 call made to police.
“We have an unresponsive guest in a room,” a caller told police dispatch in an audio clip of the call obtained and shared by US Weekly on Monday (January 10). “My officer is telling me that there is no pulse. Not responsive, not breathing and no pulse.”
TMZ initially reported Saget’s death Sunday evening, was later confirmed by the Orange County Sheriff’s Office, which said the comedian died in his hotel room at the Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes.
“Earlier today, deputies were called to the Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes for a call about an unresponsive man in a hotel room,” the department tweeted on Sunday. “The man was identified as Robert Saget & pronounced deceased on scene. Detectives found no signs of foul play or drug use in this case. #BobSaget.”
Saget, 65, was on tour and had performed at the Ponte Verda Concert Hall in Jacksonville hours before his death.
The Orlando County Sheriff’s Office said “We have no information on cause of death, and detectives have found no signs of foul play or drug use in this case. The Medical Examiner’s Office will make the final call on the cause and manner of death” while confirming Saget’s death to TMZ on Sunday.
A source reported to be a close friend of Saget told Daily Mail that the actor and comedian showed no signs of health issues prior to being found dead in his hotel room.
“There was no foul play, nothing odd at all. All we have been told is that he died in his sleep,” the source said. “We are all just devastated. I talked to him Saturday afternoon. He had a great show Saturday night. He was the most generous, lovely guy. It’s just tragic.”
Saget is best known for his role as patriarch Danny Tanner on the popular ABC sitcom Full House, a role he revived decades later for the Netflix reboot, Fuller House in 2016, as well as the original host of America’s Funniest Home Videos from 1989-97.
