Biggest Loser's Bob Harper Talks About His Heart Attack: 'I Was Dead'
“I was in full cardiac arrest,” Bob, 51, said during an interview on the Today show. “My heart stopped. Not to be dramatic, but I was dead. I was on that ground dead.”
“I had what they call a ‘widow-maker,” he continued. “It was a 6 percent survival rate, and the fact that there were doctors in the gym when I had the heart attack saved my life.”
“It was super scary for me because I woke up and I was so confused. I was like Dory from ‘Finding Nemo’ because I had this short-term memory, so I was reliving the heart attack over and over again,” he added. “I was like, wait, why am I here? What happened to me? And 10 minutes later I was asking the same thing and getting super emotional.”
