Kevin Smith Survives "the Widowmaker" Massive Heart Attack

In between a double show in Glendale, California, director and writer Kevin Smith started to feel ill and began throwing up. His friends immediately called 911 and saved his life, since he had a blocked artery called the widow maker, which is what killed John Ritter.

Kevin is okay, and said on instagram: "I’ve had a great life: loved by parents who raised me to become the individual I am. I’ve had a weird, wonderful career in all sorts of media, amazing friends, the best wife in the world and an incredible daughter who made me a Dad. But as I stared into the infinite, I realized I was relatively content. Yes, I’d miss life as it moved on without me - and I was bummed we weren’t gonna get to make #jayandsilentbobreboot before I shuffled loose the mortal coil. But generally speaking, I was okay with the end, if this was gonna be it."
