I hope Rich will be ok but it doesn't sound good when they put you into a coma on purpose.

... Girlfriend Says

http://www.tmz.com/2017/08/11/rich-piana-still-alive-coma/

Bodybuilding superstar Rich Piana is alive and fighting for his life after a medical emergency in Florida this week ... so says his girlfriend.
TMZ Sports has learned ... Piana's fitness model girlfriend, Chanel Jansen, was with Piana when he collapsed and hit his head on Monday afternoon.
Sources tell us ... Chanel administered CPR on the massive 46-year-old until help arrived.
He was transported to a nearby hospital where he was put in a medically induced coma.
There were rumors that Piana died from his injuries -- but Chanel says that's just not true.
" I just want to be clear [Piana] is STILL ALIVE," Chanel says ... "All myself and his family are asking for is POSITIVE thoughts, prayers, and love."
Piana is a former Mr. California who went on to become a huge Instagram sensation -- racking up more than 1 million followers with pumped up photos and videos.
He's a staple on the bodybuilding circuit and has worked out with some of the biggest stars in the sport -- including the guy who plays The Mountain on "Game of Thrones."

I do not know what to believe but I got this from Generation Iron:

Rich Piana and 5% Percent Nutrition director of marketing Jon Gatewood has confirmed with Generation Iron that Rich Piana is in stable condition and improving. It is still unknown what the direct cause of his hospitalization beyond rumors of overdose.

Damn, when this info first came out , everybody was like , " I told you so " about the anabolic use , and then it was that he OD'd , so everybody was like well " The Rec drugs " , including me , but now it's because he fell , hit his head , and when they put you in an induced coma , it's not always bad. The dr's do that so that the body has a better chance of recovery , so that , from what I believe , the brain doesn't continue to swell up and damage itself. So it's not always a bad thing .
People jump to conclusions , I did too . It's best to wait and get all the correct info .
Best wishes and Speedy Recovery !!!
