A Cleveland Browns fan was hospitalized Sunday after suffering a seizure and falling off of a van while tailgating in the stadium parking lot … and it was captured during a live news broadcast.
40-year-old Andy Shepherd — a die-hard Browns fan — was standing on his van taking pictures of the pre-game celebration when he suddenly collapsed and fell off the van, slamming onto the concrete.
It just so happens a reporter from Cleveland 19 News was broadcasting live from the parking lot while covering the game … and the footage went viral.
What people didn't know … Shepherd's son says his father is epileptic and takes medication to prevent seizures. The family says fall was a result of an epileptic episode and they're upset some people are making a joke out of the situation.
Shepherd was transported to a nearby hospital where he was treated for a broken shoulder, broken ribs and a fractured skull. His son also claims he's dealing with a blood clot and needs surgery.
The good news … Andy's son son says his dad is on the mend but he's still in the hospital. He's started a GoFundMe campaign to help with medical costs.
