Comedian and TV Dad Bob Saget, 65, was found deceased in his hotel room yesterday at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Orlando. Orange County Sheriff’s officers responded to a call about an unresponsive guest in one of the hotel’s rooms. When they arrived, they learned it was Bob Saget, who had been in Orlando performing his comedy show.
At the time of the incident, Orange County Sheriff’s officers said they saw no evidence of foul play and no evidence of drug use in the hotel room where Saget was staying.
According to a report from the Orange County Sheriff’s Office, obtained by The Orlando Sentinel, Mr. Saget’s room was found neat and orderly “with items owned by Mr. Saget on the nightstand, television stand, closet, and bathroom.”
The report goes on to say: “Mr. Saget was found in a supine position on his bed. His left arm was across his chest while his right arm was resting on the bed. No signs of trauma were seen.”
Mr. Saget’s family had been trying to reach him, according to the report, as he was due to have checked out of the room at the Ritz-Carlton. When they were unable to do so, they contacted hotel security, who then proceeded to knock on Mr. Saget’s door. However, there was no answer.
The security officer for the Ritz-Carlton Hotel then entered the room to find the lights off and Mr. Saget in his bed. He was not breathing, according to the Orange County Sheriff’s Office report. When the security officer couldn’t find a pulse on Mr. Saget, 911 was called.
Today, the Orange County Sheriff’s Office released details from the 911 call placed:
“What’s going on there?” a dispatcher asked.
“We have an unresponsive guest in the room,” the caller said. “My officer is telling me that he, that there is no pulse.”
Hotel management later made the call to Saget’s wife, Kelly Rizzo, to tell her of his passing.
