August Alsina Was In A Coma For Three Days After Falling Off Stage
On Sept. 16, 2014 XXL Freshman August Alsina collapsed during a performance of his single “Numb” (Watch video footage here) in New York City. The New Orleans native fell off the stage and was carried out by venue security and rushed to the hospital.
Two days later, XXL received details from Alsina’s management saying August was recovering in the ICU and was being treated for seizures which started after he collapsed. No evidence of drugs—except for marijuana—was found in his system and he collapsed likely because of exhaustion and dehydration.
Today, the young crooner spoke for the first time since the incident to share with fans his current status via Instagram (view picture above). The caption read: “This is a bit graphic but i wanted to share this w/ every follower of mine. iWoke up out of a 3 day coma… &This guy @banggang_moneyteam right here never once left my side. What I’m tryna say is cherish the ones in life who cherish you & take good care of yourself. Your life can be gone in a split second’. I’m recovering well and thankyou for all of your prayers & concerns.” -Yung
Our prayers go out to August Alsina, his family and his team. We wish him a speedy recovery.
