I can relate to this because I just had a blood in my left leg and now I'm taking shots of Lovenox twice a day for treatment.


'Wipeout' -- Another Reality-Show Death

In the latest deadly reality show incident, a contestant died last week after suffering a stroke. He was injured while performing a stunt on ABC's physically grueling hit series "Wipeout," TheWrap has learned.

Tom Sparks, 33, a recent graduate of the USC Annenberg School for Communication & Journalism, was rushed from the northern Los Angeles set of the show to a local hospital two weeks ago. Sparks later was transfered to Cedars Sinai Medical Center, where doctors performed several brain surgeries.

didn't know you had had problems John. Hope you get all better.

I'm not at all surprised to hear of an injury that caused a death due to this show. I stopped watching because it is just painful to see those contestants get tossed about,slammed into walls,poles,water.............aka wipeouts.
Ridiculous.
