Cranberries singer Dolores O’Riordan died of an accidental drowning due to alcohol intoxication, the coroner has ruled.
O’Riordan was found submerged in her bathtub at London’s Park Lane Hilton hotel in January. She showed no signs of injury or self-harm.
“There’s no evidence that this was anything other than an accident,” Coroner Shirley Radcliffe said.
According to the coroner, toxicology results showed that O’Riordan blood alcohol level was four times the legal limit for driving. Five miniature alcohol bottles and a bottle of champagne were found in the room.
The inquest into her death was held today on what would have been her 47th birthday.
