Autopsy finds Corey Haim's heart enlarged

Corey Haim, 38, died after collapsing in the apartment he shared with his mother, Judy Haim.

The autopsy on Corey Haim revealed the actor's heart was enlarged and his lungs were filled with water when he died, Haim's manager said.

The Los Angeles County coroner told Haim's mother that her son suffered from pulmonary congestion, manager Mark Heaslip said.

Heaslip said this was evidence that Haim's death was not caused by a drug overdose, but Brian Elias with the coroner's office said they are waiting for toxicology tests before deciding what killed Haim.

The 1980s teen movie actor, who struggled for decades with drug addiction, died early Wednesday after collapsing in the Los Angeles apartment he shared with his mother, authorities said.

    He probably had pneumonia, but was unable to breath due to the drug use. Maybe he took his typical dose, which he could handle when he was well. But, when you have pneumonia, your body can't handle the same. This is really unfortunate. So many people grew up watching his movies. He was a cute, cute kid and had so much potential. I'm really sorry it ended this way.

    We should all take note of Corey Feldmans words on LKL.. and not all rush to judge him, Corey Haims at PEACE now with his demons.. I think he was finally on the road to recovery? Cant find American Sunset on DVD or Decisions? But will be looking forward to seeing the Haimster latest work? He looked in shape for his brief appearance in Crank2:High Voltage. God Bless U Feldog for being there for him, not only his best friend but his brother...My thoughts and prayers go out to the families..
