Kevin Smith Reveals He Suffered a "Massive Heart Attack"

"If I hadn’t canceled show 2 to go to the hospital, I would’ve died tonight. But for now, I’m still above ground!" he posted along with a selfie from his hospital bed.

Kevin Smith in the early morning hours of Monday tweeted a selfie from a hospital bed, saying he had survived a "massive" heart attack.

The photo he posted on Twitter shortly after 3 a.m. ET/midnight PT showed him covered in tubes and wearing a hospital gown.

"After the first show this evening, I had a massive heart attack," Smith tweeted. "The Doctor who saved my life told me I had 100% blockage of my LAD artery (aka “the Widow-Maker”)." He didn't say which show he was referring to.

The Clerks director added: "If I hadn’t canceled show 2 to go to the hospital, I would’ve died tonight. But for now, I’m still above ground!"
