Alan Thicke dead at 69

Actor Alan Thicke has reportedly died of an apparent heart attack Tuesday afternoon, the actor’s publicist confirmed. He was 69 years old.

According to TMZ, the Carpinteria resident suffered a heart attack while he was playing hockey with his son, Carter, at a rink in Burbank. He was taken to a nearby hospital after having chest pains and vomiting. Thicke was pronounced dead at the hospital.
