In 2014, Tracy Morgan was involved in a serious car accident that left him in an ICU and a coma for two weeks. He suffered severe brain trauma and doctors were hopeful that he will make it. Today in 2016, if you look at Tracy, you will not be able to guess that he was in a severe accident. Tracy hasn’t forgotten too. This is why he performed a free show for the doctors and nurses, who took care of him while he was sick. Whatever he earned from that performance was donated to the hospital. Not only that, after the show, Tracy requested all of the medical staff, who saved him, to share his standing ovation in front of the audience. He also took some time out to give an interview to People Magazine in which he praised the doctors and nurses, who took really good care of him.
Tracy Morgan talks about performing for the medical staff
Last night was one of the most special nights of my life. To be standing on stage with the people that saved my life in the audience was an overwhelming experience. I will never fully be able to thank the doctors, nurses, first responders and everyone else that got me back on that stage enough.
Tracy talks about how grateful he is to the medical staff
These people are heroes and I love them all from the bottom of my heart. The only good thing that happened on that horrible night was that I was close to Robert Wood Johnson Hospital when the accident happened. God Bless them all.
Tracy on how the nurses helped him
When I first came out of the coma, I was a mess. I would curse out every day, I’d throw things at [my nurse], and the only thing she’d say me was everything was going to be all right.
