Blow had his heart attack at his Woodland Hills home in October 2016 and credited police officers for saving his life.

LAPD officers Chris Vege, Calvin Hill and Pete Parra initially responded to an argument Blow was having with his son. Suddenly, Blow collapsed and the officers sprung into action.

“I was holding his head, making sure he was stable, making sure his airway was open,” Vege said.

After roughly five minutes of back and forth, local paramedics took Blow to a nearby hospital.

Judging by his recent post, Blow is confident in the medical professionals caring for him at UCLA.
