The death of Matthew Perry, renowned for his role as Chandler in the sitcom Friends, has been determined as accidental by the County of Los Angeles Department of Medical Examiner.

The toxicology test revealed elevated ketamine levels typically associated with general anesthesia.

Law enforcement responded to a 911 call at 4.07 pm local time, treating the incident as a water rescue. The autopsy findings were released by the Medical Examiner, stating that Perry was found unresponsive in his residence’s pool.
