BOB Saget may have died from a sudden medical emergency such as a heart attack or stroke, reports claim.
The late actor, who was best known to his role in the 90’s sitcom Full House, was discovered unconscious by Ritz-Carlton Orlando hotel security staff on Sunday.
According to TMZ, the comedian was found lying face-up on the bed, with his left arm across his chest, and his right arm lying beside him.
And after he was pronounced dead at the scene, authorities now believe that his cause of his death could be a heart attack, the outlet added.

Bob, who had performed a show in Jacksonville the night before, reportedly got into his hotel room at 2:17am.
Investigators say that it showed no indication of a disturbance or issue in the night.
