Michael Clarke Duncan Death Linked to Oxygen Deprivation

by at . Comments

New information has come out regarding the death of Michael Clarke Duncan.

Sources tell TMZ the 54-year old actor never fully recovered from the heart attack he suffered on July 13, as his brain went without oxygen for five full minutes during that episode, prior to fiancee Omarosa Manigault restarting his heart via CPR.

From there, Duncan faced a number of health problems, ranging from issues with his kidneys... to his pancreas… to high blood pressure. Each time one area was fixed, the insider says, another difficulty would arise.

A devastated Omarosa, who had planned to marry the actor in January, is making funeral arrangements as we type. Our thoughts go out to her and Duncan's loved ones.

that is a terrible loss, great man, great character, will be missed for many. I was very surprised in found out that his personal quote was "My sister [Judith] used to say I had a frail chest and she'd beat me up all the time." as stated on his full bio on Imdb website. If this was true it was a very unfortunate quote to use since the bible says: -Joel 3:10 Beat your plowshares into swords, and your pruning-hooks into spears: LET THE WEAK SAY, I AM STRONG.-Matthew 15:18 But the things which proceed out of the mouth come forth out of the heart; and they defile the man.- Mark 12:24 Jesus said to them, Is not this where you wander out of the way and go wrong, because you know neither the Scriptures nor the power of God? -Matthew 12:37 For by your words you will be justified and acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned and sentenced.

I will never forget Mr. Duncan after seeing him in "The Green Mile." Mr. Duncan made me believe in 'goodness personified' and such a gift can never and should never be taken lightly. Mr. Duncan, thank you and may your family and friends find some measure of comfort in the incredible admiration so many Americans have for Michael. Rest in peace, gentle giant.
