Singer wakes up after fainting on stage and going into a coma

It's been a terrifying week for the family, friends and fans of R&B star August Alsina.

While performing, August fainted and fell off the stage, and had to be rushed to hospital. The next day he was placed in a medically induced coma, and was put of a breathing machine while suffering seizures.

Thankfully however, it looks like August is starting to recover. He came out of the coma after three days, and posted a heartfelt message on Instagram to his worried fans.

“This is a bit graphic but I wanted to share this with every follower of mine. I woke up out of a 3 day coma… and this guy @banggang_moneyteam right here never once left my side.”

“What I'm tryna say is cherish the ones in life who cherish you & take good care of yourself. Your life can be gone in a split second'. I'm recovering well and thank you for all of your prayers & concerns. – Yung”
