Diff'rent Strokes actor Gary Coleman died today after he was pulled off life support. His death is the result of head injuries he suffered during a fall at his Utah home earlier this week.
His wife, Shannon Price, 24, is said to have made the heartbreaking decision to switch off the life support machine after he fell into a coma.
TMZ, the website which broke the news of Michael Jackson's death, was the first to report Coleman's death.
