This is so scary. Rapper Lil Wayne’s plane was forced to make an emergency landing after he suffered a seizure, then blacked out as the pilot landed the plane.
Lil Wayne, 33, gave his team quite the scare when he had a seizure seemingly out of nowhere on a lengthy cross-country flight. Once they realized that Wayne needed medical attention immediately, the pilot began his descent to land and unfortunately this caused the rapper to completely black out.
Lil Wayne suffered from a seizure on Monday, June 13, while flying over Middle America, reports TMZ. Unfortunately the flight was forced to make an emergency landing, and Lil Wayne was taken back down to the ground for an emergency landing in Omaha, Nebraska.
Paramedics met Lil Wayne at the airstrip, according to the same report, and even though it is being reported that he is awake again, sources claim he has decided to refuse medical treatment. Hopefully he changes his mind and allows the paramedics to check on him once he becomes more aware of the scary situation he woke to.
However, this is not the first time that Lil Wayne has suffered from seizures. In 2012 he was hospitalized for “seizure-like” symptoms, and then in 2013 he nearly died after multiple seizures. The rapper later revealed that the seizures scared him, and he decided to make some very serious life changes in order to save his own life.
“He’s young and a lot of people depend on him so it was important for him to keep a brave face but deep down, he was scared. That was a case of him being neglectful toward his health,” a source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY regarding the terrifying ordeal that Wayne suffered.
