On Monday evening Feb. 26th, comic/director/actor (and Red Bank, NJ native) Kevin Smith suffered a massive heart attack during a stand-up special he was producing in California.
Thankfully, Kevin is doing well and he should make a full recovery. He shared his story with everyone on Facebook, including some symptoms that you normally wouldn't think would be a heart attack. He had a 100% blockage of his LAD artery, which is termed the "widow-maker" because once that goes, there's no survival chance. He received treatment and had surgery in quick enough time where if he'd waited even an hour longer, he'd most likely have died.
Take a few minutes to hear Kevin tell his story by clicking here. It's a really sobering video.
Get well soon, Silent Bob!
