The 30-year-old was recently hospitalized for an injury she sustained while jumping into a foam pit at TwitchCon 2022 in San Diego. The Oct. 8 incident, which was broadcast live by Lenovo, occurred just as she had finished participating in a jousting competition held at the computer maker’s convention booth.
as seen in video circulating on the internet, Chechik celebrated her victory by jumping from a small platform and doing the splits in the air. However, she appeared to hit her tailbone as she landed in the pit, which appeared to be a shallow pool filled with foam blocks. Visibly in pain, the adult performer announced to the crowd, “I can’t go out.”
An off-camera person can be heard calling for a doctor as organizers rushed to her aid.
“Well, I broke my back in two places and I will have surgery to put in a subway rod for support today,” Chechik tweeted on Oct. 9, a day after the fall. “When it rains, it pours and I’m definitely feeling the rain right now.”
