Of Mice And Men frontman Austin Carlile returned to hospital over the weekend after suffering an electric shock.
And although he reports he’s doing well, he admits the accident was a “close call” as he recovers from heart surgery.
He underwent a medical procedure in June for a genetic disorder, and later reported he was on the road to 100% recovery. The band later announced they wouldn’t return to full-time work until next year.
Carlile tweeted: “I’ve been electrocuted by mic, working etc before, but never to the extent of yesterday. Nothing to show from it other than burns on my fingers. Lucky to be alive – but today feel like I was ran over by a truck. Close call for the heart.”
He later said his post had been misinterpreted and that he hadn’t meant the shock came from a microphone, adding: “I never said how in my tweets.”
He then tweeted a picture of a cat, saying: “Here’s what getting shocked by a mic looks like, and also how it feels.”
