TwitchCon Foam Pit Closed After Sending Multiple People to the Hospital

SCREENSHOT VIA TWITTER

“On Sunday, adult performer and Twitch streamer Adriana Chechik jumped from a pedestal designed for a foam-jousting game and broke her back in two places. The foam pit, which was sponsored by Lenovo and Intel, was live-streamed as part of TwitchCon, so the moment it happened was caught on video and went viral. Chechik leaps from the platform, does a split in the air, and lands on her backside before rolling over in pain.

Chechik tweeted that she was undergoing surgery to insert a metal rod into her back following the injury. “Send your support. When it rains it pours and I am definitely feeling the rain right now,” she wrote.”
