Garry Shandling died 66, this past Thursday, apparently he had been struggling with breathing one day prior to his death. Shandling told his doctor that this was a symptom he was experiencing, and the doctor ordered him to arrive at the hospital at 10 AM.
Shandling made the 911 call himself, but fell over amidst the call. When Shandling was heading to the ER, he had gone into cardiac arrest. A limousine service was waiting outside for Shandling, when EMTs had rushed in at 10:45.
All the reports said he was healthy, before he died in the St. John’s Health Center in Santa Monica.
RIP to a great comedian, Garry Shandling.
