Prince, a legendary superstar, died on April 21 suddenly at the age of 57, six days after his jet made an emergency landing to a private hospital in Moline, Illinois. His representative then told the media that the singer is suffering from flu. It turns out it was not merely a flu but something deadlier.
The exact cause of his death is unknown. A new report claims that doctors gave him a “save shot” to counteract the effects of opiate, TMZ reports. It is further said that a private room was demanded by his team, but they were refused. The singer remained in the hospital for three hours and was released thereafter as no “private rooms” were available. He was definitely not in a good state when he left for his home. Efforts are being made to get the information from the hospital sources.
Prince played his last concert at Atlanta. His bad flu also forced him to postpone two Piano & a Microphone tour stops in Atlanta. The day before his death, he was seen near the pharmacy adjacent to his recording studio. This was his fourth visit to the store. He was last seen around 7 p.m.
The singer was found unresponsive in a lift near his home at 9:43 a.m.The emergency 911 call was received as “male down not breathing,” News.com reports. He was given CPR at around 9:49 a.m. and at around 10:00 a.m. he was declared dead. Carver County Sheriff Jim Olson and his publicist reported his death in a statement stating that singer died on April 21 at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen.
Prince was born to an African-American pianist John Nelson in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
“Wait a few days before you waste any prayers,” he told the fans near his home. But he was found dead five days later.
“I am a musician. And I am music,” the rockstar once said, according to Mirror, very fitting for the “Purple Rain” star who sold 22 million copies worldwide.
