Story Behind Darius Danesh Coma and Illness
In 2017, there was a terrifying possibility that Darius Danesh would go into a coma. After drinking the contaminated water, he suffered a seizure that was dangerously close to being fatal.
Danesh had consumed the unfiltered water from the River Thames before going to shoot an advertisement for a charity that provides water filtration systems. Because of this, the singer ended up getting bacterial meningitis and had to be treated in a hospital in Glasgow. After further examination, a diagnosis of cerebral edema was made.
According to Healthline, the swelling of the brain is caused by a condition known as cerebral edema. It is a disorder that can be fatal as it leads to the accumulation of fluid in the brain, which in turn creates intracranial pressure.
After receiving his diagnosis, the pop idol stated, “I drank the water for the video and got the funds, but when I traveled to Glasgow to see my mother for her birthday, I fainted.”
It was determined that I had cerebral oedema, a condition in which the brain swells to a larger size than the skull. I owe my life to my father. He took me to the emergency room. They made a prompt diagnosis,’ the singer went on to say.
In the meantime, the coma was not the only source of discomfort that he experienced. His father, Dr. Booth Danesh, was given a prognosis of less than six months to live due to his cancer.
In addition, his mother, Avril Campbell Danesh, was diagnosed with breast cancer the same year in 2015.
