    Ed Winter, LA County Coroner's Office Assistant Chief, told reporters that Haim's mother had called paramedics when her son collapsed in the early morning hours.

    "This morning at about 1:30...Corey Haim's mom found him. He got up out of bed and had been feeling ill for the last couple of days. As he got out of bed, he felt a little weak and went down to the floor on his knees. He's had flu-like symptoms. She called paramedics. They responded and transported him to the hospital where he was pronounced [dead] at 2:15 this morning," Winter said.

    Authorities found four prescription drug bottles inside the apartment he shared with his mother, but no illegal drugs, according to Winter.

    The Canadian-born actor first rose to fame in 1984's "Firstborn," where he starred with Teri Garr, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Robert Downey Jr.

    In 1987, the actor the reached the peak of his career in the Joel Schumacher's "Lost Boys," where he hunted vampires with his friend and frequent co-star Corey Feldman. Some of his other box office hits included "Lucas," "License to Drive" and "Dream a Little Dream."

    Following his rise to fame, the actor battled drug and alcohol addiction, a dramatic weight gain, a slew of medical issues and was in and out of rehab numerous times.

    In a 2004 interview with Britain's The Sun, the actor spoke candidly about the history of his drug use.

    "I was working on 'Lost Boy's when I smoked my first joint," he told the British tabloid in 2004. "I did cocaine for about a year and a half, then it led to crack."

    A stint in rehab led to an addiction of prescription meds, including stimulants and sedatives such as Valium, the actor claimed.

    "I started on the downers which were a hell of a lot better than the uppers because I was a nervous wreck," he told the newspaper. "But one led to two, two led to four, four led to eight, until at the end it was about 85 a day."

    In 1997, the actor filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection with medical bill debt totalling more than $200,000.

    He appeared again with Feldman in 2007 in the A&E reality show, "The Two Coreys," which was cancelled after two seasons. The same year he told Larry King in an interview on "Larry King Live" that he would be a "chronic relapser for the rest of my life."

    The actor was poised for a comeback in 2008 when he took out a full-page ad in Variety, saying, "This is not a stunt, I'm back. I'm ready to work. I'm ready to make amends."

    In 2009, he appeared with Jason Statham in "Crank: High Voltage."

    Haim was 38.

    Possible drug overdose?

    Yup, drug overdose it was. Sad when we already know how it happened! As I am only 26 I wasn't really old enough then but I have an older sister who was all about the 2 Corey's. However, I do love Lost Boys. One of the best movies ever!

I can't tell you how badly I wanted out of there." Denver rookie QB John Elway, on Jack Lambert, after Lambert and the Steelers knocked Elway out of his first game as a pro (1983).

    I watched that Two Corey's show that aired on A&E (I think) like in 2008 and I knew it was going to end bad for Corey Haim. He was high as a kite for the entire show. They casted him for the Lost Boys II and he promptly got kicked off the set and fired.
