Corey Haim Collapsed, Prescriptions Found

3/10/2010 11:46 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Corey Haim DiesCorey Haim collapsed in the bedroom of his mother's apartment and four prescription bottles were found nearby ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

We've learned Corey had been sick the last couple of days with flu-like symptoms. The medications recovered, however, were not related to his illness, sources tell TMZ.

We're told no illicit drugs were found in the apartment.

Sources say Haim got out of bed just before 1 AM and collapsed in front of his mother. She called 911 at 12:53 AM and Corey was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead at 2:15 AM.

Corey's mom told authorities he had been battling prescription drug addiction for years.

Authorities believe -- though are not certain -- Corey died of an accidental drug overdose.

UPDATE: We're told the LAPD has wrapped up their preliminary investigation and it's now in the coroner's hands.

For those who make really unnecessary comments on someone who has just died, just hope that when you die no one is laughing.

His poor Mom. To watch your child be born then 38 years later watch him pass. I really feel for her.

VERY sad.. Addiction ruined the last 10 years or so of his life. I feel awful for his poor mother. What a terrible thing to witness - your child slowly rotting away before your eyes.

RIP Corey.

Hoo boy, here we go with another "accidental" death brought on by the "flu". I don't want to hear about how he was "sick" and didn't go to a doctor. It's the Brittany Murphy death excuse. We all know what really killed him, and it wasn't something in the last few DAYS. It was something brewing over the last several YEARS. So go ahead all you apologists, blame a flu virus if you want, so precious little Corey can be remembered with a smile. But we all know what really happened here.

Who the f@ck are you talking to? Everyone knows and acknowledges he had a drug problem including his mother. You are such an ignorant azz.

I'm talking to you, dumbass. Watch the media paint this as an "accidental" death because he "didn't take care of himself". We'll hear about how he "accidently" mixed prescription medications, blah blah blah. I bet we'll hear how he died from "pneumonia", just like Brittany Murphy did. He was a pill popper, and took them as a heroin replacement. I hope that's what we hear, and not that he should have gone to a doctor because he was "sick".
