Gary Coleman's fatal fall, from which he suffered an intracranial hemorrhage, occurred after an "intense 4-hour dialysis session" to treat his kidney disease, his friend Jeremy Spence tells Us Weekly. "Dialysis had taken a lot out of him that day," Spence says. "He just wanted to go home, but he was pretty weak."
Although Coleman underwent several dialysis sessions a week to help curb the kidney disease nephritis, which was responsible for stunting his growth, Spence claims the Diff'rent Strokes actor "had no strength at all" when he returned home at around 3 PM on May 26. That's when Coleman slipped and hit his head, causing a one-inch gash.
