Hill Suffers Mild Heart Attack
As revealed by Black Enterprise, Hill reportedly suffered a mild heart attack on Saturday, the day after his ankle surgery. The Morehouse professor took to Instagram to inform his followers of the dangers of not seeing a physician regularly.
Doctors diagnosed DVT (deep vain thrombosis) as the underlying issue to cause the cardiac arrest.
The clotting from the pulmonary embolism nearly blocked all passages to his heart.
Consequently, the journalist endured what could have been prevented if he’d seen a doctor often.
Additionally, Hill went on to praise the doctors at Temple University Hospital. He credits them for ultimately saving his life.
He also shut down tweeters implying that the clots formed because of the vaccine.
