Early Sunday morning, April 11th 2021, Lane, along with multiple friends, were involved in a campfire explosion. At the ER, he was placed in a medically-induced coma and airlifted to HCMC burn unit. On Sunday afternoon he was taken out of the coma and allowed to breathe on his own and is doing great in that area. Lane's body was over 60% burned. His left side of his face, left hand, most of his legs and butt area. He has 1st and 2nd degree burns but mostly 3rd degree and possibly some 4th. Lane is going to be undergoing multiple surgeries with a lot grafting on his lower extremities. Lane goes in daily for cleaning and bandage changes but today, April 14th, they will being doing some deep cleaning to assess the degree of everything to figure out where all the grafting needs to be done. Lane is in a lot of pain and heavily sedated but overall he is being positive about everything that's happened. He will be in the hospital at a minimum of 3 weeks and that's if everything goes perfectly.
