Bodybuilding sensation Rich Piana has died ... nearly 3 weeks after going into a coma following a medical emergency at his Florida apartment, TMZ Sports has learned.
We broke the story ... Piana collapsed while getting a haircut on August 7. His girlfriend, Chanel, tried to revive him but was unable to wake him.
Piana was rushed to a nearby hospital where he was placed into a medically induced coma -- but was unable to recover.
The District Six Medical Examiner in Florida confirms Piana passed away early Friday morning at the hospital.
A preliminary search at his apartment revealed more than 20 bottles of steroids and a white powder -- but it's unclear if the substances played a role in his death.
46-year-old Piana competed and won several bodybuilding competitions over the years -- including Mr. California -- and became an Instagram sensation, racking up more than 1 million followers.

It's sad to see people throwing there life away to be big and buff.

Even though they don't intend on harming thereself it's sad to see, having one or two. Not a problem in my eyes, but contentiously..it becomes a problem

never heard of the bloke before this story pooped out. He must've known there was some kind of risk in doing this with the lifestyle it requires?

I seen Furious Pete post about this on Facebook, and how he gained motivation for him; although i'm not into the body building community it's a shame to lose someone like that!

Even if that is the case steroids are still a dangours drugs. i do agree some times the media misblames drugs but to say steroids are contributing to some of these very young men dying of hearth issues.

sure but like everything sensible dosages and clean needles reduce the health risks by lots. They should teach people sensible dosages & safe usage
