80’s child star Gary Coleman reportedly on life support & in coma

Gary Coleman has slipped into a coma and is on life support in a Salt Lake City hospital, his spokesman says.

Spokesman John Alcantar told KABC that Coleman, 42, suffered severe bleeding in his skull at his home south of Salt Lake City on Wednesday. He was rushed to a hospital and was conscious and lucid by mid- morning Thursday, but by afternoon, his condition worsened and was slipping in and out of consciousness.

ABC News says he suffered intracranial hemorrhage.

The Diff’rent Strokes star has had a history of health problems. He has been battling kidney disease since his childhood, and also had heart surgery last fall.

Coleman, who was hospitalized earlier this year having having a seizure on the set of The Insider, lives in Santaquin, about 55 miles south of Salt Lake City.
