New Details Surrounding Matthew Perry’s Death Revealed
November 10, 2023
Matthew Perry was found unresponsive in his hot tub on October 28, 2023. His death is reported to be a drowning, but now more details are being released surrounding that tragic day.
The ‘Friends’ actor was just 54 years old when he was found deceased at his home in his jacuzzi. Before relaxing in the hot tub, Perry was seen out and about, even playing pickleball, one of his favorite activities, for approximately an hour.
Matthew Perry Was Fatigued Days Leading Up To Death
Two weeks following Perry’s death, the ‘Friends’ actor was reportedly fatigued in the days leading up to his death.
“(His partner) said he had been fatigued (that day) and over the past week. A little more than usual. He played for one hour then went home,” Billy Bush, a friend of the late actor, stated.
This indicates that perhaps there was something medical going on that was undiagnosed, leading to the fatigue and perhaps the incident that occurred in the hot tub, though the autopsy report and toxicology report should be able to answer more questions surrounding the late actor’s unexpected death.
Prescription anti-depressants and anti-anxiety medications were discovered on the scene, as well as a prescription COPD drug — a medication for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, usually used for people with emphysema or chronic bronchitis. No illegal drugs were found at the scene.
Bystander Attempts To Save Matthew Perry’s Life
The person who found Perry in the hot tub attempted to pull his head above water and was able to rest him on the edge before emergency personnel arrived on the scene. Unfortunately, it was too late.
“A bystander had brought (Matthew’s) head above the water and gotten him to the edge (of the hot tub), then firefighters removed him from the water,” LAFD spokesperson Nicholas Prange stated. “A rapid medical assessment, sadly, revealed the man was deceased prior to first responder arrival.”
Perry’s death certificate was just released a few days ago, which listed the actor’s cause of death as ‘deferred’, pending further investigation and toxicology reports.
Could Matthew Perry Have Been Saved?
Police officials initially believed they were attending a possible “water rescue” at Matthew Perry’s Pacific Palisades home after a call came in at 4:07 p.m. PST on October 28. However, when they arrived, they found him unresponsive.
Prior to his unexpected death, ‘Friends’ star Matthew Perry released a raw memoir, where he opened up about his entire life, including his mental health and his addictions. In that memoir, there is a quote that may have been a cry for help.
“My mind is out to kill me, and I know it,” Perry said in his memoir. “I am constantly filled with a lurking loneliness, a yearning, clinging to the notion that something outside of me will fix me. But I had had all that the outside had to offer.”
Although the cause of death is still under investigation, it is believed that Perry drowned as he was found unresponsive in his hot tub. An autopsy and toxicology report are expected to answer more questions about his true cause of death, but police did do an initial investigation of Perry’s house, and all they found were prescription anti-depressants and anti-anxiety medications — no illegal narcotics were discovered at the scene.
