In a startling development over the weekend, the entertainment industry was shaken by the tragic news of Matthew Perry’s untimely death. The celebrated actor, renowned for his portrayal of Chandler Bing on the iconic television series "Friends," was found lifeless in the jacuzzi at his lavish Los Angeles residence on Saturday, October 28.
He was a mere 54 years old. As the news reverberates through Hollywood, new particulars have begun to surface, painting a clearer picture of the moments leading up to the discovery of Perry’s body. According to a recent disclosure from the Los Angeles Police Department, it is believed that Perry had not been submerged in the jacuzzi for an extended period, as his body was described as “not waterlogged” when the emergency response teams arrived on the scene.
It was the actor’s assistant who made the grim discovery, finding Perry submerged and attempting to “reposition” his body to bring it above the water’s surface. The assistant's prompt actions led to the immediate call for first responders, who were initially summoned under the suspicion of a cardiac arrest.
