Former “Diff’rent Strokes” star Gary Coleman is currently hospitalized in Utah in critical condition.
The actor’s brother-in-law told TMZ, which first reported the story, that Coleman fell and suffered a head injury.
A source told TMZ that he was admitted to the hospital yesterday after being transported from his Utah home at approximately 12:50 PM.
Access spoke on Thursday with a source close to Todd Bridges, Coleman’s “Diff’rent Strokes” co-star, who confirmed the story and said that Coleman’s wife told the source that Coleman fell and had to be resuscitated. Coleman’s wife thought they had lost him, and the situation is currently still very touch and go.
Coleman’s manager told E! Online, “We’re just getting bits and pieces right now, so there’s really nothing to report. If there’s anything to announce, we’ll let you know.”
As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, in February, Coleman pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor criminal mischief charge related to a domestic violence incident with wife Shannon Price from April 2009. He was ordered to complete a domestic violence course and pay a $595 fine.
