Rich Piana Dead At 46

Bodybuilding sensation Rich Piana has passed away three weeks after falling into a coma.

He was 46.

TMZ reports:

Piana collapsed while getting a haircut on August 7. His girlfriend, Chanel, tried to revive him but was unable to wake him.

Piana was rushed to a nearby hospital where he was placed into a medically induced coma — but was unable to recover.

The District Six Medical Examiner in Florida confirms Piana passed away early Friday morning at the hospital.

A preliminary search at his apartment revealed more than 20 bottles of steroids and a white powder — but it’s unclear if the substances played a role in his death.

46-year-old Piana competed and won several bodybuilding competitions over the years — including Mr. California — and became an Instagram sensation, racking up more than 1 million followers.

My sincerest condolences to his family and friends during this difficult time.
