That one of the fittest men in America can suffer a heart attack so severe that he remains unconscious for two whole days following should scare the shit out of everyone reading.
“NEW YORK (AP) — Fitness trainer and host of NBC’s “Biggest Loser” Bob Harper says he is recovering from a serious heart attack that left him unconscious for two days.
Harper tells TMZ he was working out in a gym in New York City this month when he collapsed. He says a doctor who also was in the gym performed CPR on him.
The 51-year-old Harper says he spent eight days in a New York hospital and has not yet been cleared to fly home to Los Angeles.
Harper has been a fixture on all 17 seasons of “The Biggest Loser.” He served as a trainer on the show from 2004 to 2015. He took over as host of the reality weight loss program last year.”
Learn CPR and make sure those around you and the gym you go to are equipped with the tools to save you should you, God forbid, or someone you love, suffer the same scary fate while exercising. Obviously call 911 first (not 999 like this UK graphic shows).
