Whitney Houston was a singing powerhouse and music star. Her angelic voice and number-one hits won the hearts of millions of people. But on February 11, 2012, she was found de@d in a shower at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. This was a sad end to her life. Fans and the media were left asking what happened to Whitney Houston in the following days.
When the answer finally came, it sent shockwaves through the music business and even further. In this piece, we’ll look into the shocking truth about Whitney Houston’s untimely de@th and discover the sad details of what happened.
Whitney Houston Cause of De@th
Houston’s body was immersed in water on February 11, 2012, at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California. At 3:15 p.m., when the singer talked with her mother, Cissy Houston, she seemed well.
Less than half an hour after the singer’s assistant found her unconscious in the tub, at 3:43, they called hotel security. They were already at the hotel for Clive Davis’s nighttime pre-Grammy party, so two minutes later, police officers entered her suite. At 3:55 p.m., Houston was pronounced de@d after receiving CPR.
The Coroner concluded that Houston drowned accidentally and that heart disease, coca!ne, and metabolites all contributed to her de@th.
Her system also included traces of marijuana, Xanax (an anti-anxiety drug), Benadryl (an allergy treatment), and FIexeril (a muscle relaxant). According to Los Angeles County’s chief medical examiner, Craig Harvey:
“An autopsy into Houston’s deἀth found that the cause of deἀth was accidental drowning with atherosclerotic heart disease and cocἀine use listed as contributing factors.”
“Water was discovered in her lungs, when she was immersed underwater. Based on our testing, the cocἀine level was not necessarily a deἀdly level. However, her cἀrdiac condition and prolonged cocἀine usage complicated her demἰse.”
The news of her de@th stunned audiences and music lovers around. When news of the singer’s p@ssing spread, it was given great prominence in the media.
