‘Supernatural’ Star Mark Sheppard Leaves Hospital Following Six Heart Attacks

Mark Sheppard of Supernatural fame is now out of the hospital in Los Angeles after he suffered six heart attacks. Sheppard, 59, happened to be seen leaving the hospital with a smile on his face, TMZ reports.

When leaving the hospital, photos seemed to indicate that Sheppard still might have post-op drains connected to his body. Sheppard did claim that he suffered a number of “massive heart attacks” after collapsing in his kitchen at home on Friday. Reportedly, it took EMTs four times before they brought him back to life.

Having those drains still connected simply shows that more healing is needed for Sheppard. Yet he is good enough to head back home. Also, Sheppard reportedly had a total blockage located in his left anterior descending artery.

Sheppard did credit his wife and those workers at St. Joseph’s Hospital to help him survive his ordeal. While in the hospital, Sheppard posted the following to his Instagram account.
