911 call released in Bob Saget’s death

Bob Saget had “no pulse” and “was not breathing” when he was found in his Orlando hotel room in Florida Sunday, according to the newly released 911 call.
Saget’s lifeless body was found by hotel security during a wellness check.

Saget’s cause of death remains unknown, but new details surrounding his surprise passing emerged on Monday after an autopsy was completed.

“An autopsy was performed this morning on Robert Lane Saget. Mr. Saget is a 65-year-old male, who was found unresponsive in his hotel room. At this time, there is no evidence of drug use or foul play,” according to a statement from the Orange and Osceola Counties chief medical examiner Joshua Stephany.

According to a report released by the Orange County Sheriff’s Office, Saget was discovered by hotel security on Sunday afternoon after his family requested a wellness check. The comedian was found deceased “in a supine position on his bed.” The supine position means lying horizontally with the face and torso facing up.

“I checked the immediate area for signs of foul play. It should be noted none were found. The room itself was orderly with items owned by Mr. Saget on the nightstand, television stand, closet and bathroom,” the report reads, with the responding officer stating “no signs of trauma were seen.”

Medications were present, according to the report, and it’s noted Saget’s medical history is unknown. Police say no drugs were found.

Saget was staying at the Ritz-Carlton in Orlando, Florida. The comedian was on tour and performed a two-hour standup set the night before his death. He used his room key to enter his hotel room at 2:17 a.m. early on Sunday morning, the incident report reveals.

“Family members” contacted hotel security to check on his well-being and “several attempts” were made to open the door after check out time, the report says.
