On September 11, 2003, Ritter began experiencing severe nausea and vomiting while filming '8 Simple Rules'. He was then taken to a nearby hospital, St. Joseph's, as reported by LA Times.

Yasbeck recalled that tests were carried out in 2008 when a doctor informed her that her husband had an aortic dissection—a condition she'd never heard of before.

Sadly, the 'Three's Company' star died unexpectedly from an undetected aortic dissection hours later on the same day.

Ritter's widow was left behind to raise their child alone and she eventually became a grandmother.
