In 2016 while Corey Sherer was vacationing in Hawaii he had a terrible accident that left him with 9 broken ribs, a hole in the lungs and a few slices in the spleen. Following the seriousness of the accident, Corey spent several weeks in hospital.
Explaning what happened Corey Wrote On His IG page.
“As you all know I’m in Hawaii. I got into a very bad jet skiing accident. I have 9 broken ribs, sliced spleen and punctured a hole in my lungs. I love all you guys. I was knocked out in the middle of the ocean. Thank you God for keeping me alive,” Corey explained in an emotionally charged Instagram post on July 17, 2016.
As Corey described in a previous YouTube video, the catastrophic accident took place during a jet-skiing trip he embarked on with close friend and collaborator Brennen Taylor.
“I’m riding right here, Brennen was riding behind me, and I was stopping and turning around to see where Brennen was and he jumped the wave that was behind me and landed directly on top of me, I immediately got knocked out […],”
“We’re in the middle of the ocean, it’s like 40 feet deep underneath us and it’s raining so there’s gotta be sharks […] I’m just face-first in the ocean, knocked out,” Corey added.
The rescue attempt went with varying degrees of success. Brennen tried to save him, but his jet-ski flipped. The next time Corey came to he was on a boat, Corey explained.
“It felt like if someone had a sword that was on fire, it was just slowly slicing down my back,” the YouTuber described what the pain had felt like.
