General Hospital’s Tyler Christopher cause of death revealed

Tyler Christopher Baker is an American actor, born on November 11, 1972 in Illinois, United States.

Tyler was discovered dead at his San Diego residence on October 31, 2023. News of his death sent a shock wave across the world.

The actor died at the age of 50.

However, his death was not an issue, the issue was the fact that the cause of his death was unknown. But now, three months later, the cause of his death has been revealed.

The Medical Examiner Office’s report discovered that he died due to positional asphyxia due to acute alcohol intoxication.

What this means is that he suffocated just to being in a poor position whilst he had been drinking.

Other contributing factors

They also listed coronary artery atherosclerosis as a contributing factor, meaning that there was too much plaque in his arteries, the part of the cardiovascular system that carries oxygenated blood away from the heart and to muscles and organs.

Coronary artery atherosclerosis has a series of contributing factors itself such as diet, inflammation, genetics, a sedentary lifestyle, obesity, diabetes, smoking, high cholesterol and high blood pressure.

These factors can interact and compound each other, leading to the progressive narrowing and hardening of the coronary arteries.

This can eventually result in chest pain (angina), heart attack, or other complications, such as the one that played a role in Christopher’s death.
