Comedian Tracy Morgan recently performed a show for the doctors and nurses, who treated him after he injured himself in a road accident in June 2014.
The 47-year-old comic was in a coma and left with a traumatic brain injury and a broken leg after a road accident in New Jersey in June 2014.
He said performing at the State Theatre in New Brunswick for the medical staff from the nearby Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital was one of the “most special nights” of his life, reported People magazine.
“Last night was one of the most special nights of my life. To be standing on stage with the people that saved my life in the audience was an overwhelming experience. I will never fully be able to thank the doctors, nurses, first responders and everyone else that got me back on that stage enough,” Morgan said.
“These people are heroes and I love them all from the bottom of my heart. “The only good thing that happened on that horrible night was that I was close to Robert Wood Johnson Hospital when the accident happened. God Bless them all.”
The “30 Rock” star ended the evening with an “emotional” thank you for hospital staff.
“After the sold-out show, Tracy asked for the house lights to be turned on and requested all those who helped save his life to share his standing ovation with him. It was a very emotional night,” a source said.
Following the performance, Morgan invited all the hospital employees in the audience backstage to his dressing room. All proceeds from the show were donated to the Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital.
