Bargera reflects on his December 2022 hospital experience
Meanwhile, addressing that he did not actually aware that he had a worsening COVID infection last month, he said in the interview that he was announced death on December 8.
Besides, reflecting on his COVID-linked hospitalization experience, the 43-year-old said, “I did not know that I had gnarly COVID and my body was shutting down. I went into four seizures, each one lasting 10 to 20 minutes.
On the fourth one I bit my tongue so hard it was nearly fallen off. It got so swollen and puffy it wouldn’t fit in my mouth. I was drinking the infected blood which gave me pneumonia as well. I went to the hospital and had my fifth seizure and then couldn’t breathe without a tube down my throat.
I woke up five days later thinking I was there for just a couple hours. I spent eight days in there. When they took that tube out I felt like I sucked on Darth Vader’s dick”. Bam Bargera is a former professional American skateboarder and a stunt performer.
