Allegedly, the comedian ran out of the medication he was taking, and began to feel chest pains, prompting him to seek treatment at an Arizona hospital. According to a representative of the entertainer, “Gallagher suffered a mild heart attack today at a hospital in Sedona due to complications from his previous heart attack. He is awake and resting comfortably now.”
Gallagher was initially hospitalized for his current medical condition on March 14, after collapsing just before a performance. He was then placed in a medically induced coma while recovering.
Gallagher had recently claimed he was set to retire from live performances after 32 years, calling his trade ‘baby-sitting people who can’t handle alcohol.’
