BJ Penn recently revealed that he was seriously injured everywhere last year while he was in the wave pool. Former two-department UFC champions elaborated on the unusual case he compared to the final destination of a movie series.
Penn says he almost died and suffered multiple fractures after most likely being the first person to be sucked into the engine room of the wave pool.
“Last year, when I was sucked into the engine room of a wave pool and thought I was going to die. I kept thinking,’Don’t die for your child,'” Penn wrote on Instagram.
“I was surfing for about an hour and the lines started to get longer to catch the waves. I was sitting next to the owner of the wave pool by the” wall “where the waves came. “He explained. “The first wave it emits is an unexploded ordnance for everyone to prepare for the next. The unexploded ordnance came back and was so close to the wall that the waves swallowed me and made me and the surfboard a huge cement. I pushed it under the wall. I remember feeling scared when I was sucked into the pipe.
“It eventually pushed me into a large dark cement room filled with water to push the next wave for the wave pool. I felt like I was in the movie SAW or Final Destination. The top of the room. Filled with water, held his breath and pushed out the water to make waves, which were very rough. “
Penn also posted a photo of himself to the hospital, explaining that in an unusual incident he had been dealing with fractures and infections for weeks.
“Everything I bumped into in the room that hurt me was infected. I had a severe sinus infection, I had some facial fractures because I was knocked around the cement wall, and the dirty water from the fractures I got. I got into my face and infected my entire sinuses. I had been taking antibiotics for my face for 3 weeks.
“While I was in the engine room of the wave pool, I knew one of my friends outside the big island was a legendary surfer, because I knew he would come to help me. , I calmed down. Many others panicked and may have given up, but I remained strong for the kids. Anyway, to shorten the long story, I did that Survived Mother Fucker !! “
Penn acknowledges his fighting career by helping him survive the tough times and says he has no plans to sue the water park.
“People’s names and water parks are omitted. I helped me get there because the kine guy came to your house to play and wasn’t injured and trying to sue you. I love ❤️ for everyone who helped me survive, “Pen wrote.
“Maybe I was sucked into the engine room of the wave pool for the first time in history, but I hope I can give you some advice no matter what happens in your life or how scary it is.” If I hadn’t fought a tough woman for the rest of my life, I might have panicked, but that was just another day in the office. “
