August Alsina Wakes From Three-Day Coma After Fainting On Concert Stage
The singer updates fans on his condition.
When August Alsina collapsed on stage at a show in New York City earlier this week, it looked bad. But it wasn't clear exactly what happened to the singer following that incident until Friday (September 19).
This morning, the New Orleans native posted a picture of himself in a hospital bed, saying he had just woken up from a three-day coma. In the caption, he said he's on the road to recovery:
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
His Cincinnati concert was cancelled the day after the initial incident; he currently has shows scheduled on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, in Indianapolis, South Bend and Kansas City, respectively, but it seems unlikely he'll perform.
MTV News has reached out to reps for Alsina and is awaiting comment.
