Beth Chapman's Death from Lung Cancer Leaves 'Dog the Bounty Hunter' Fans Heartbroken
The tragic demise of Beth Chapman left her fans in tears. Recently, her youngest daughter opened up about her death that has left them even more heartbroken.
20-year-old Bonnie Chapman, the daughter of “Dog the Bounty Hunter” reality star, explained that her mother actually died from stage IV lung cancer rather than much-rumored throat cancer.
Beth was diagnosed with throat cancer initially in 2017. However, after undergoing treatment, she managed to beat her cancer as it entered into remission.
Despite the initial success, her cancer returned and appeared on her lungs, which eventually claimed her life at the age of 51.
HER FINAL MOMENTS
Bonnie also recalled the emotional final moments of Beth’s life, when she “literally choked on her cancer.”
“My mom was naked in the bathroom and told my dad to look at her … And then she was standing there and she started gasping, and my sister came into the room and they called 911 immediately. And that was the last moment that we really saw her completely conscious.”
The reality star was still able to speak during her next few days at the hospital, but she was never fully awake, according to Bonnie.
She added that these difficult details of Beth’s final moments still haunt Dog and he hasn’t been able to fully recover from the loss.
FANS ARE HEARTBROKEN
Following Bonnie’s revelation, many grief-stricken fans of Beth and Dog have felt more heartbroken.
Several of them took to social media to express their remorse and to console the Chapman family.
Twitter user, ‘Amber Angelico,’ consoled Bonnie by reminding her that Beth was a “force” and she should carry that strength with her.

The fans’ reaction to Bonnie’s statement can be summarized with one simple statement from a Twitter user, ‘WriterInkRead’:
“This breaks my heart.”
Beth took her last breath at the Queen Medical Centre in Hawaii on June 26 after being placed in a medically induced coma. She died in the company of her loved ones including her mother.
