PandaTV was in hour 13 of a Twitch subathon stream for charity when something felt off, landing him in the emergency room. He has now warned other streamers of the risks.
PandaTV is a World of Warcraft streamer, known for defeating Ludwig’s streamathon record of 840 hours. On September 10, he was attempting a 24-hour stream for charity. The charity, RUOK, is a suicide prevention organization and Panda was out to help their cause.
Sadly, halfway through the stream, he started to feel “off”, ending the stream early and landing himself in the hospital.
PandaTV’s health scare on stream
Towards the end of the stream, Panda was complaining of pain in the back of his knee and arm and told his viewers he had to end the stream early to take care of the issue.
Later that same day, he posted a video update from the ER. He said the doctors aren’t exactly sure what’s wrong, and that they suspect a blood clot among other possible ailments.
Panda also explained that he still wasn’t sure if the long streaming hours caused the health issue. “I don’t know if the 2 are connected yet but just insane be safe.”
Update for everyone things not looking to good ATM. I don’t have much of an update because they don’t know whats going on yet of more test
Please be safe doing long streams all.
