About a month ago the film world lost one of its greatest actors: Sean Connery († 90), the first and probably most popular James Bond actor, has passed away. His son Jason Connery (57) told the BBC about the exact circumstances.
“He fell asleep peacefully in the Bahamas,” he said. His father died on Saturday night at his home in Nassau. The Scottish actor was surrounded by many family members who were there when he died.
Autopsy report is available
Four weeks later, the actor’s official cause of death is known. As can be seen from the autopsy report, which is available to the US portal “TMZ”, Connery died of respiratory and cardiac arrest. This was caused by pneumonia.
Shortly after his death, it was assumed that he succumbed to cardiac arrest, after which both his son and his wife had confirmed that Connery had passed away peacefully in his sleep. But his old age is also listed as a cause in the document. (bsn)
