Twitch streamer Adriana Chechik, who broke her back in two places at TwichCon San Diego, is now out of hospital following a second round of surgery.

The incident occurred at a Gladiators-style foam pit stand sponsored by Lenovo, where Chechik jumped into the pit and was left severely injured. Several others were also injured.

Chechik has been sharing updates on her recovery on social media, confirming she had a second round of surgery on 14th October – almost a week after the incident.

Chechik also responded to those asking why she jumped into the pit.

“For the ppl asking why did u jump. Dont try and turn me into the bad guy. I am among all those who assumed it was met with proper safety precautions. Its like getting into a car assuming the air bag will work and it doesnt. Im not at fault. None of the victims injured are,” she said.

She also shared progress of her recovery on Instagram, writing: “Not being able to move or do anything for myself is so difficult. Im so thankful to the nursing staff. I never thought I would ever be immobile. These next few days are going to be extremely hard. Yesterday I sat up and then spent the rest of my day in hysterics and pain. The realization of how much pain you have to push through set in. Please pray that Ill find strength to stand today. Im gonna take it one day at a time and if Im not rdy then Im not rdy.”

Since then, neither Lenovo nor Twitch have responded publicly.
