“Friends” actor, Mike Hagerty, died after having a strong, adverse reaction to an antibiotic in the hospital, which caused him to lapse into a coma … TMZ has learned.
Sources close to Mike tell TMZ … he got an infection back in April in one of his legs. He ended up recovering, but still wasn’t feeling 100%.
We’re told he was about to start filming the 2nd season of “Somebody Somewhere” but his energy level was still really low … so his doctor sent him to the hospital to get checked out.
Sadly, things took a turn for the worse. He was given an antibiotic and he had a terrible reaction … causing him to have a seizure and go into a coma.
As we reported, Mike passed away last week in the hospital. It wasn’t COVID-related … Mike had tested negative. Mike’s “Somebody Somewhere” co-star Bridget Everett announced the news of his death.
Mike is most well known for his recurring role on “Friends” … as well as his character in HBO’s “Somebody Somewhere.” He appeared in lots of other shows … including “Boston Legal,” “Cheers,” “Glee,” “CSI,” “Seinfeld” and so much more.
