Fox News founder Roger Ailes was conscious, cognizant and able to hold a conversation three days after he fell and hit his head on the limestone floor of his Palm Beach Mansion.
The 77-year-old controversial television executive fell on May 10 and died on May 18, but he kept control of his faculties for three days while he was under observation at St. Mary’s Medical Center, according to his autopsy report.
The former CEO was taken to the hospital after falling and hitting his head so hard that his wife, Elizabeth, and a housekeeper heard “a loud noise,” according to notes in the autopsy file.
When they found him he was “on he floor in a supine position,” but fully conscious and he simply told them that he’d fallen.
