Godfrey Gao Suffered From A Concussion While Filming A Show 9 Years Agojessie tan
Godfrey Gao’s death has triggered a wave of emotion around the world. There are people who are furious at the producers of Chase Me, the Chinese sports variety show that Godfrey participated in before his death, and are demanding justice for the late star. There also those who, while sad about his sudden and so tragic passing, are praising Godfrey for his professionalism and dedication to work.
And it turns out, the late actor had hurt himself badly during the filming of another variety show before.
In 2010, Godfrey suffered a concussion while shooting a diving scene for Chinese TV series, Volleyball Lover.
Unaware that the pool was only 1.4m deep, the 1.96m tall Godfrey dived in and ended up hitting his head on the bottom of the pool. Almost immediately his head started to bleed and a bump formed where he had injured it. But the ever-professional actor brushed it off at first and continued filming until he started to feel nauseous.
Godfrey was then quickly rushed to the hospital where he was diagnosed with a concussion.
Sadly, he had to fly to Shanghai for work the next morning. But he had trouble sleeping that very night because he was so worried that his concussion would have repercussions on his health in the future. But because he didn’t want to create unnecessary trouble for the crew waiting for him in Shanghai, decided to bear with the pain. When he got off the flight, he was hit with severe head pains but he still persevered and went off to work.
Much respect. You will be missed Godfrey.
