As we said before, Dick Clark was actually in the hospital for outpatient surgery when he passed away due to a heart attack.
That surgery was actually a minor prostate surgery.
Here's what David Dreier, a close friend, said:
“He had very minor prostate surgery. All of a sudden, he got a feeling in his arm about 9:30 [Wednesday] morning and he was gone by 11:15. It turned out to be a massive heart attack.”
That is so scary, and so sad that it can happen just like that.
We'll miss you, Dick Clark! NYE will most surely never be the same!
