Danny Gans Death Accidental

Danny Gans died as a result of combination of heart problems and toxic reaction to hydromorphone opiate.

Danny suffered from high blood pressure, heart irregularities and polycythemia - an excess amount of red blood cells - which causes a thickening of the heart muscle.

In addition to heart problems, Mr. Gans suffered from chronic pain syndrome and took hydromorphone (an opiate often sold under the brand name Dilaudid) to alleviate the pain symptoms.

Hydromorphone caused a toxic reaction in Mr. Gans, and in turn his death.

Clark County Coroner Mike Murphy stated flatly "This is not an issue of drug abuse."



Comments & Discussion:

So would you say he died of a drug overdose?

maybe not an overdose...but a very severe case of a reaction...

Well that clears that up. Here I'd just assumed that he'd finally perfected his Chris Farley impersonation.
