Liberian born Ghanaian actor, Eddie Watson has revealed on Instagram how he nearly lost his life after falling seriously sick and tried driving to the hospital himself.
According to the actor, he realized he was not feeling well and decided to drive himself to the hospital but unfortunately he could not continue because his situation was getting worst and hit pavement somewhere where he stopped an started crying.
Fortunately for him, a good Samaritan who was driving to work saw him and took him to the hospital for treatment as he was diagnosed with 3+ Malaria.
He posted a video of himself on a hospital bed and with caption;
I was trying to drive myself to the hospital yesterday, weak, head pounding, body aches and shivering out of control. It was so bad I even hit a pavement and stopped. I was just in the car in tears and praying when my Good Samaritan, @monicafriday1 , came driving by. She saw me in the car devastated and left her business and all she had to do yesterday, got into my car and rushed me to the hospital. I remember she kept praying worshiping as she drove. I was diagnosed of 3+ malaria and for the first time in over 25years I am admitted in a hospital. Doctor said that’s the highest and I was this👌🏾close to cerebral malaria. We put so many things above our health, most especially work, when most cases nobody truly cares! About three or fours day ago, I dropped on set unable to move for a while, not know what was going on, blurry vision and sharp back pain but still after, no hospital. When you die, as it is said in the film industry, the job will continue! Life continues!🤔Thanks, Jehovah God, for you Monica and for the Lexanaa hospital staff. God bless!
