According to Gray’s representative, Phil Viardo, the star is currently “recovering well.” Last week, the game show star was rushed to hospital after suffering from chest pains.

After he suffered from his first heart attack on April 20, 2020, Gray’s doctors began operating. They put in a stent to restore blood flow from one of his arteries.

GRAY’S THREE HEART ATTACKS

Sadly, the stent failed to work right after it was put in and the television personality experienced a second heart attack. Doctors put in a second stent to further help him with his blood flow.

While going out for a walk around the hospital, Gray’s second stent failed. He then had his third massive heart attack on the left anterior descending artery.

STAR IS IN RECOVERY

The artery is also known as the “widowmaker” because it is almost always fatal. However, Gray, 53, was quite lucky because his doctors were already present and managed to save his life.

He’s now recovering in an Arizona hospital. Viardo had an update about the star’s health: “He is recovering well, considering his brush with death this week.”
