How Did Bruce Lee Die?
Bruce's father died, at age 64.
Bruce had the feeling that he would only live to be half his father's
age. Sure enough, Bruce died when he was 32. Brandon Lee, Bruce's
son, also died at a very young age. In fact, he died just three and a

let down an offer. Although Bruce won all the fights he was involved
in, he was probably hit numerous times in the head. In addition to
this theory, Bruce complained of reoccurring headaches, good suspect
for the aneurysm possibility.
