As Tracy Morgan lay in a medically induced lethargy in accordance with the multi-car crash that took living conditions of his longtime acquaintance, everyone wondered if the actor-comedian would be able to pull through. Morgan had suffered a severe intelligence hurt as a result of the collision, and it appeared that his life was hanging in the balance.
“When you’re in a lethargy for eight to 10 days, you’re basically knocking on the door, ” Morgan says today.
Nearly two years after the shocking coincidence, Morgan is sitting down with Oprah Winfrey and opening up about his experience and striking convalescence on OWN’s “SuperSoul Sunday.” In particular, he describes having a very clear eyesight during the time he was in the coma.
“I don’t know if I was in the coma or in and out of the lethargy, ” Morgan supposes. “But I remember … I was talking to my dad.”
Morgan’s father, Jimmy, passed away in 1987 after losing his battle with AIDS.
“He had this green, this green situation on, ” Morgan persists. “I just remember him saying, ‘I’m not ready for you, son.'”
The spiritual meeting was improbably overwhelming for Morgan.
“I started crying so difficult, ” he supposes. “Probably harder than I screamed at his funeral. I just obstructed reading, ‘Dad.’ He was my best friend in life.”
Morgan’s full interview breezes on “SuperSoul Sunday” this Sunday at 11 a.m. ET and again at 7 p. m. ET on OWN.
