Chris Doyle fills us in on what happened last Thursday in New Mexico…
On Monday we found on that Chris Doyle was hospitalized last Thursday in New Mexico from a message Kink sent out, but we didn’t really get much detail as to what happened. It turns out that Chris went into cardiac arrest and nearly died! Fortunately Calvin Kosovich performed CPR until paramedics came and Chris is still here with us today. We figured it would be a little while until we heard from Chris, but he dropped a message online explaining what happened and his condition that he has… So stoked Chris made it out of this one!
“Okay, so as most have heard by now, I had a very bad accident recently while riding… well, after riding. I was out riding with the Kink crew and shortly after the session, as we were loading up the van, I went into cardiac arrest. My friends most definitely saved my life. Jay and Nathan both called 911, Chad and Darryl ran to the nearest hospital while Matt rode his bike there. When that nearest hospital didn’t help, they came back to find Calvin Kosovich administering CPR.
What I am suffering from is called HCM (hypertrophic cardiomyopathy). Click on the link at the bottom for more information.
I would highly suggest to everybody out there to take a CPR class because it definitely saved my life and it could save you or somebody you love.
Currently, I am at the University of New Mexico Hospital where I am receiving the utmost care. From here on out,I will be wearing a device called ICD to prevent this from happening again. Check out the other link below.
Words cannot do justice to explain the gratitude I have for the outpouring love and support my family and I are receiving from all of you. ❤️”
