“It felt like I was genuinely having a heart attack,” said 18-year-old Chance Ammirata, who was describing the feeling when his medical emergency began about three weeks ago.
“I would say my chest felt like it was collapsing and tightening up and I couldn’t breathe.”
Emergency room doctors told him his right lung had a hole in it and had collapsed.
“I just freaked out — they said, ‘Your lung has collapsed. You have to go to surgery right now.'”
His Instagram posts include the tube doctors put in his chest.
