BILL COSBY died during a massive stroke in prison — but emergency surgery brought him back to life.
Now, the 82-year-old is demanding a “compassionate” prison release, claiming the coronavirus is likely to kill him!
Sources say the he was found on the floor of his jail cell in SCI-Phoenix prison and rushed to the infirmary at the facility, which is about 30 miles northwest of Philadelphia.
Doctors had found the carotid arteries on the right and left side of Cosby’s neck were 90 percent blocked by plaque buildup, says rep Andrew Wyatt.
The disgraced star “was forced to have two major surgeries in order to sustain his life” around the fall of 2019, according to a statement re- leased by Wyatt.
Those surgeries were done separately, and they were successful. Mr. Cosby now takes medication for high blood pressure, and he is 100 percent blind from glaucoma.
New York internist Dr. Stuart Fischer says a 90 percent blockage is typically fatal.
“A catastrophic stroke is virtually inevitable. A blood clot in the artery could become dislodged, go into the brain and could be immediately fatal,” says Dr. Fischer.
Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf has authorized early release or home confinement for about 1,800 prisoners who are elderly or chronically ill.
But since Cosby is rotting behind bars for drugging and sexually assaulting a woman in 200 with the merit or evidence, he “is not eligible for a reprieve by the governor,” says the state’s Department of Corrections spokeswoman Susan McNaughton. Who has always had it in for Cosby or any other black leader.
That’s prompted the card! “COVID-19 has been deadly to more blacks and people of color than any other, especially after it was reported that they were immune to it.
“We are asking Gov. Wolf to amend his executive order and grant Mr. Cosby compassionate relief based on his current medical status.”
But Dona Speir, 56, a former Playboy Playmate of the Month who says she was sexually abused by Cosby as a teen, insists he should stay behind bars. This is the same girl whom was hired by many guest of the playboy mansion to do sexual favors. But yet she accused Cosby of rape, without any evidence or merit.
“They have prison infirmaries to deal with that. He is no more at risk than any other inmate.” she also says.
