Following her loss of consciousness during the live Instagram streaming of her 72-hour massage-a-thon challenge, Nigerian masseuse Joyce Ijeoma has broken silence.
On Monday, the young lady successfully completed 53 hours of her challenge, leaving her with 19 hours remaining to reach her goal. However, on Tuesday at precisely 1 a.m, she unfortunately collapsed.
An online video clip of a brief duration emerged, capturing the precise moment when she collapsed while administering a massage to a female client.
In the live video, her assistant was present by her side when she unexpectedly lost consciousness and fell to the ground. Promptly, the assistant called for assistance and made efforts to revive her.
Following the incident, Ijeoma, via her official Instagram page, on Wednesday, informed her fans about her health condition and provide updates on her response to treatment.
Joyce also assured her fans that she would promptly provide them with more updates soon.
She wrote,“I want to thank God, everyone, for the love and support during my world record attempt.
I want to let everyone know that I’m getting proper care, and I will update you on the progress in due time.”
A South African, Alastair Galpin, holds the closest similar record to Ijeoma. In 2015, Galpin set the record for GWR’s longest full-body massage in 25 hours and 4 minutes in South Kalimantan, Indonesia.
