Hollywood LITERALLY lost one its biggest stars on Monday morning when Michael Clark Duncan passed away.
We knew the Green Mile star's death stemmed from complications of a heart attack he suffered on July 13, but now the specifics have been made available.
His life was initially saved on the fateful day by five minutes of emergency CPR from his fiancée, Omarosa Manigault. Although he was resuscitated, it turns out that his body suffered permanent damage from the incident which ultimately contributed to his death.
Five minutes without oxygen is about the most a human body can endure before other organs begin to be affected. The 6'5" actor experienced problems with his kidneys, pancreas and blood pressure during recovery before the rest of his body just shut down.
So, so sad!
Our hearts go out to all of Michael's grieving family members, friends and loved ones during this difficult time.
