The Turtleman was in a terrible car accident that broke his bone and bruised his chest. In a Facebook Live broadcast from the hospital on March 15, 2022, the star of Call of the Wildman revealed that he had been hurt while chopping down a tree.
He disclosed that he had suffered a broken arm and ongoing chest discomfort as a result of the risky misstep. A fresh rumor is that the Turtleman may have had a heart attack as well. However, the celebrity in question has not made any such declarations. Why did this occur? What’s the status of the Turtleman?
What Happened to Turtleman?
The extent of Turtleman’s wounds from the recent accident is shown in a video uploaded to his official Facebook page. One of the tree limbs he was cutting hit him in the neck and shoulders. Saying, “I fractured a bone in my arm. Ernie may be heard saying, “I got hit by a tree limb approximately as big as my leg, and now my chest hurts.”
He then begged for his supporters to continue praying for him and thanked them for being there for him during his recuperation. Many people are relieved to see that Turtleman is still alive following the recent prank that went viral, and the video has received a lot of attention because of this.
Who is Ernie Brown Jr.?
Ernie became well-known after appearing on the Animal Planet reality show Call of the Wildman from 2011 to 2014. The show followed Ernie, who went by the moniker “Turtleman,” as he went all around Kentucky helping people get rid of dangerous and annoying bugs.
He attracted a big following because of the unique way he captured dangerous wildlife, often using nothing but his bare hands. The show was canceled after its fourth season. Despite all of this, Turtleman still has a dedicated fan base. However, every so often, internet rumors emerge claiming his death has already occurred, just as the one that appeared a few days ago.
