Kevin Hart shares emotional video of his recovery from terrible car crash
Kevin Hart shared an emotional video about his difficult but admirable recovery from the life-threatening car crash he was involved in.
On September 1 in the Malibu hills, Hart’s 1970 Plymouth Barracuda swerved off the road. He was in the passenger seat at the time, traveling with two other people. The car careened down an embankment and slammed into a tree. Sadly, this led to a horrific car incident.
The incident left Hart suffering three spinal fractures, which needed to be fused in emergency surgery shortly after. Although initially he was thought to be doing fine after the crash, it soon became clear how serious his injuries actually were.
Kevin Hart released the inspiring video on Tuesday, October 29.
It shows parts of his recovery routine and he also shares his thoughts after this life-changing experience.
There can be seen footage of Hart’s physical therapy and him struggling to walk again. After this incident, the comedian star’s life was forever changed.
His words are powerful:
“When God talks, you gotta listen.”
Kevin shares he realized no matter how much we think we control our lives, we’re not actually in control. And accidents like this one somehow show us the real meaning of life from a whole new perspective.
“Some of the craziest things that happen to you end up being the things that you needed the most. And in this case, I honestly feel like God basically told me to sit down.”
What the 40-year-old actor is most grateful for is his family and his friends that have been always there for him.
He is also thankful for the love and support his fans are giving him through all this time.
At the end of the video, Hart reveals that his recovery will continue for about one year, according to one of his doctors. But what’s important for the actor is not how long it will take, but the fact that he has the chance to simply be alive and says he’s ‘not in a rush‘.
Luckily, Kevin Hart has a great team of people taking care of him and supporting him throughout his recovery. His biggest advice after this transformative experience is:
“So don’t take today for granted cuz tomorrow’s not promised.”
