A man who claims to have died seven times has bravely spoken of his horrific ordeal after losing both of his legs due to his drinking. Bash Wright was 59 when he suddenly collapsed and was rushed to hospital.
Medical staff told Bash and his family that his pancreas was leaking, killing him from the inside, reports Examiner Live.
He was placed in intensive care, where his condition deteriorated – leading to doctors putting him into a coma for three months.
During this time, every major organ in his body failed. His heart stopped, and a ventilator was all that was keeping Bash alive.
He also developed pneumonia, a C-diff infection, leaking veins, and necrosis in his legs. His loved ones were told by doctors that he would not survive.
But incredibly, Bash pulled through.
He explained that while in a coma, which ended up last seven months, he died seven times – but the doctors were able to bring him back.
Now, 62, Bash said: “I lost my legs through too much partying. The party started at 16 and it never stopped. Alcoholism was my issue.
“I was put in a home and then got a wheelchair, and in Whitby I went up Green Lane, I got a bit further everyday.”
After his startling recovery, Bash has set himself the task of tackling Roseberry Topping – a distinctive hill in North Yorkshire with a jagged cliff summit, which is often compared to the much higher Matterhorn in the Swiss-Italian Alps.

He uses a series of ropes to haul his way up to the summit.
Bash travels around the country to raise money for disability charities.
His latest trek was to raise awareness for SSAFA, an Armed Forces charity.
Bash said he wants to encourage those with disabilities that they too “can do anything”.
He said: “I do it for charity but the awareness is to the disabled people, I say just crack on, there is nothing wrong with you. Do anything, switch off that telly, come out, it’s to show disabled people there is nothing really wrong, you can do anything.
“You don’t need a pair of legs to go up Roseberry Topping, just give me a wheelchair and some clothes. Going up, I started off at the railway station and from there I went through all the little farms and everything, through the woods.
“The wheelchair I use is a proper off roader. It was a case of getting as far up at the top of Roseberry Topping, then I had to pull the chair up using ropes.
“I ditched the chair just before the top, I finished off the journey on my stumps, on my hands. I then came back down, stayed overnight by the chair and then the next morning, with the sunrise I came back. It’s been a lovely time.”
