Poor Gary Coleman can't catch a break. According to online reports, the pint sized actor was admitted to a Utah hospital in critical condition on Wednesday after suffering a seizure and hitting his head.
Coleman's manager John Alacantar said Friday the actor's condition worsened over the past 24 hours. Coleman was placed on life support when doctors couldn't stem the bleeding in his brain.
"As of mid-morning on May 27, Mr. Coleman was conscious and lucid," said Alcantar. "By early afternoon, Mr. Coleman was slipping in and out of consciousness and his condition worsened.
"We are saddened to announce that since mid-afternoon, Mountain Time, on May 27, 2010, Mr. Coleman has been unconscious and on life support." [link]
The actor's wife is tight lipped about what really happened, but Coleman's brother told TMZ that the actor suffered a head injury after falling at home.
Hospital spokeswoman Janet Frank tells People.com:
"I can confirm Mr. Coleman is a patient here at Utah Valley Regional Medical Center. He's listed in critical condition. He was admitted Wednesday. We are not confirming what department he's in or any further details."
Coleman was hospitalized in February after suffering a seizure on the set of The Insider. He was also hospitalized in January. Coleman was born with a congenital kidney disease which stunted his growth. He is 42.
