TMZ is reporting that Buff Bagwell called his wife from his Jeep around 1:30 PM on Monday and "advised her he was getting ready to have a seizure."
Bagwell lost control of his vehicle a short time later and was seriously injured in a car accident.
who was it that Tweeted that Bagwell was fine. with all those injurys he doesn't sound fine.. wish him a full and speedy recovery.
I really hate that this happened to Bagwell. I was always a fan of his. At least the cause of his accident was a legitimate medical condition and not alcohol or drugs. It has gotten to the point that when I see stories like this, I automatically assume that these guys were up to no good. There have been WAY too many drug and alcohol incidents in wrestling!!
God bless you, Buff!! Get well soon!!!
I don't mean to sound insensitive but if he felt a seizure was coming on shouldn't he have pulled over rather than risk his life and that of other people? As it is TMZ reporting it I will save my judgement until it is confirmed by another source.
I was thinking the same. Pulling over and calling your wife, and paramedics seems like the most logical thing to do.
I was wondering the same thing myself. The only reason I can see to keep driving would be if he was driving to a hospital.
I was reading this aloud to my friends and they all asked why he didn't pull over. Also, was he calling hands free, or actually dialed her.
I know that sometimes when you're about to have a seizure your brain doesn't really work correctly (from some research I've done and talking to people who suffer with seizures).
Honestly, I'm just glad he didn't take anyone else out when he lost control.
I don't know the laws where he is, nor do I know the frequency in which he has seizures. That being said, Alabama law states a person shall not drive for 6 months after having a seizure. My wife has suffered from them and sometimes you can get an "aura" (the feeling of a seizure coming on) and sometimes they occur with no warning. Regardless, I'm glad he is alive and no one else was hurt in the incident. Hopefully he will have a full recovery and receive treatment to better control his seizures.
Hmm, just using my head here:
Maybe he couldn't use his legs to apply the brakes?! He was having a seizure; his brain was not sending the signals for his legs to move and he knew something bad was happening. He called his wife because he though the was going to die in the car wreck that was going to happen so he wanted to tell his wife what was going to happen and that he loved her.
TMZ is the cesspool of the internet with their comment section.
