It is with deep regret that Soaps.com confirms that Hunter Tylo’s 19 year-old son, Michael (Mickey), has died after drowning in the family pool. Mickey was pronounced dead at 11:55 pm on Thursday, October 18th. The Clark County coroner has spoken to media to confirm that the death was accidental. Mickey apparently fell into the pool after having a medical event – he is listed as having suffered from a seizure disorder.

Soaps.com wishes to offer sincere condolences to Hunter, her ex-husband Michael, Mickey’s siblings, and the rest of their family and friends, as they struggle in the days and weeks ahead to make sense of this untimely passing. Hunter has had her fair share of challenges in life already, having dealt with the diagnosis of her infant daughter in 1998 with cancer in her right eye (retinoblastoma), and the break-up of her marriage to Michael Tylo, father of her three youngest children (she has an older son, Chris Morehart, from a previous marriage).
