Apparently he drowned in his hot tub? Whoa. That’s a weird way to go. No drugs were found.
According to TMZ, he was found early in the morning after returning home from a two hour pickleball game. It could have just been a heart attack.Matthew Perry had a long history of alcoholism. This is speculation, but if he was drunk enough he could pass out in the hot tub and drown.
When you immerse yourself in hot water, your blood vessels dilate in order to carry heat away from your internal organs more efficiently. This can also cause a corresponding drop in blood pressure, especially if you are dehydrated. I’m wondering if he got into the tub exhausted after the game, passed out, slid under, etc.That's so disheartening. How does one drown in a hot tub? The whole thing is depressing.
