Duck Dynasty Star Hospitalized After ‘Near Death Experience’
“I About Died…”
Reportedly prompted by a ‘near-death experience,’ Duck Dynasty star Jep Robertson was recently rushed to the hospital during a hunting trip. Sending many fans reeling about the potential cause of his hospitalization, it was quickly released that he had suffered a seizure.
While we are uncertain exactly how near death the young Robertson actually was, the experience definitely left an impression on him that he won’t soon forget, as evidenced by the tweet above.
Luck for Jep, big brother Willie immediately rushed to his brother’s side during the incident, and the youngest Robertson was taken to a local hospital for treatment.
According to TMZ, “A rep for Jep says he’s doing better … but will stay hospitalized for more tests. He’s being treated with antibiotics to cover possible infections doctors think may have triggered the seizure.”
While the reality star is recovering, the New York Daily News reports that he is undergoing several tests to discover the root cause of the seizure:
Jep was rushed to the hospital and received immediate treatment. He is doing well now, but is still in the hospital for additional tests and observation, and he is being treated with antibiotics to cover a range of possible infections believed to have caused the seizure,” the family said in a statement.
The Duck Dynasty member seems to be taking the incident in stride, as his humor regarding the incident has been made public via his Twitter page:

Even his family poked fun at Jep on social media as Willie wrote:
@JepDuckman is recovering well, people react differently when they see big deer. It was to much for him.
