“General Hospital” star Tyler Christopher’s official cause of death was revealed Friday.

According to documents from the San Diego Medical Examiner obtained by TMZ, Christopher’s cause of death is listed as positional asphyxia due to acute alcohol intoxication.

This essentially means the soap star suffocated to death because of the way he was positioned and alcohol played a part in that.

His death was accidental, the docs reportedly state.

Coronary artery atherosclerosis is also listed as a contributing condition.

The Post contacted Christopher’s rep and the Medical Examiner for comment.

Christopher’s rep, Chi Muoi Lo, confirmed the outlet’s reporting in a statement to The Post.

I can confirm that this was his cause of death. Tyler was taken from us too soon. The world was a better place with him in it. I miss him as much today as I did the day we lost him, and I’ll continue to miss him forever. He was a gift to those who he loved and loved him,” he wrote.

An unidentified friend reportedly found Christopher dead in the bedroom of his San Diego apartment on Oct. 31.

He was 50.

In 2019, he was arrested and charged with public intoxication at home in Indiana after an Uber driver reported him.

He had allegedly hailed a ride home but passed out and urinated on himself at some point en route.

He portrayed both Nikolas Cassadine from 1996 to 2016, as well as Connor Bishop from 2004 to 2005 on ABC’s “General Hospital.”

In 2016, he won the Daytime Emmy for his performance and previously more earned four nominations.

A year later, he joined NBC’s “Days of Our Lives” as Stefan DiMera, which also scored him an Emmy nod. He left the series in 2019 and was recast with Brandon Barash.

Christopher’s “GH” co-star Maurice Benard confirmed his death Oct. 31 on Instagram.

“It is with great sadness that we share the news of the passing of Tyler Christopher,” Benard wrote at the time.

“Tyler passed away this morning following a cardiac event in his San Diego apartment.”

“Tyler was a truly talented individual that lit up the screen in every scene he performed and relished bringing joy to his loyal fans through his acting. Tyler was a sweet soul and wonderful friend to all of those who knew him.”

He added, “Tyler was an advocate for better mental health and substance use treatment who openly spoke about his struggles with bipolar depression and alcohol. We are beyond devastated by the loss of our dear friend and pray for his children and his father.”

Lo also confirmed the actor’s death to The Post.

“I can confirm that Tyler Christopher has passed away this morning,” he wrote in the statement.

“This news was incredibly shocking, and I am devastated by his loss. He was a very gifted actor, and more importantly, an amazing friend. My heart goes out to his friends and family who loved him so much.”
