Corey Haim's Mother: He Died from 'Pulmonary Congestion'

While the official word from the coroner regarding the reason behind actor Corey Haim's death have not been revealed, Haim's mother Judy stated that her son's death was due to pulmonary congestion, not drugs.

According to People, Judy Haim spoke to Access Hollywood and said the coroner called to tell her after the autopsy (which took place yesterday at 11 a.m.) that Corey "suffered pulmonary congestion" but, "he had an enlarged heart along with the water in the lungs." 

Yesterday, People reported that L.A. Coroner Chief Craig Harvey said, "There is no final cause of death at this time," adding, "The final cause of death has been deferred pending additional tests that have been ordered."

Haim, who passed away on Wednesday at the age of 38, was best known for his roles in '80s films such as Lucas (1986), The Lost Boys (1987), License to Drive (1988), and Dream a Little Dream (1989). The actor admitted he was a drug addict in the past, and had been to rehab more than fifteen times. In 2001, he was hospitalized for a drug-induced stroke.

Haim's longtime friend and costar Corey Feldman spoke with Larry King earlier this week about the actor's state of mind before his passing. Feldman told King, "He was fine. He was actually giving me some advice about something I was very upset about. He was being very positive."
