LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Corey Haim died of pulmonary congestion, the actor’s mother confirmed to Access Hollywood’s Maria Menounos.
Judy Haim told Maria that she received an early courtesy call from the LA County Coroner’s Office who told her that an autopsy found her son had an enlarged heart and his lungs were filled with water. His cause of death was due to pulmonary congestion.
The Coroner’s Office also told Access that prescription bottles containing four different medications were taken from his room. His mother and manager told the Coroner’s Office those medications were the only ones he was taking, but the Coroner could not confirm if the medications were found in his body.
Corey was pronounced dead at 2:15 AM on Wednesday at St. Joseph’s Medical Center in Burbank, Calif., after a few days of flu-like symptoms.
