On This Day;

In 2008, Hollywood mourned a talented young actor’s life cut tragically short, after the body of 28-year-old Heath Ledger was found by his masseuse and housekeeper on the floor of his rented apartment in New York City.

The report stated that he died of an accidental “abuse of prescription medications” that included commonly known painkillers, anti-anxiety drugs and sleeping pills.

Breakfast producer Zak Stuart joins Tom Mann and Zoe Kounadis to elaborate on this event in history.
