(Newser) – Authorities in Florida are saying Roger Ailes died of bleeding on the brain caused by an earlier fall at home, the AP reports. The Palm Beach County Medical Examiner's Office says the Fox News founder died of a subdural hematoma—or bleeding on the brain— caused by the fall. The death has been ruled accidental and there was no evidence of foul play. According to a Palm Beach police report, a caller contacted 911 dispatchers just before 2pm on May 10, saying—as was previously reported—Ailes had fallen in his bathroom, hit his head, and had serious bleeding.
