Mike Hagerty made a name for himself as building superintendent Mr. Treeger on the classic sitcom, “Friends.” Earlier this month, Mike tragically passed away at the age of 67. Now more details relating to the circumstances of his death have come to light.
According to TMZ, Mike died after having a strong adverse reaction to an antibiotic in the hospital, which caused him to lapse into a coma. Sources close to the actor revealed to the outlet that he got an infection back in April in one of his legs. He ended up recovering, but still wasn’t feeling 100%.
Mike 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 which caused him to have a seizure and go into a coma.
As we previously reported, Mike died on Thursday in Los Angeles. The news was reported by his “Somebody Somewhere” costar Bridget Everett. Mike is most well known for his recurring role on “Friends” as well as his character in HBO’s “Somebody Somewhere.”
Mike Hagerty got his start in the 1983 comedy film “Doctor Detroit.” From there, he appeared in dozens of popular television shows and movies. Mike was rarely the star of the show, but he brought a slick sense of comedic timing and a unique look to the roles he took on. He will be missed dearly.
