Judith Hill has revealed the details surrounding the late Prince’s medical emergency around a week before his death.
Prince’s protégé Hill had a candid interview with The New York Times as she recounted how Prince lost consciousness while heading to Minneapolis in April. Hill, who was a close friend of the late musician, shared that she was one of the passengers onboard Prince’s plane when the medical emergency happened. The multi-awarded singer was travelling from Atlanta with Hill, along with his friend and assistant Kirk Johnson, after completing a series of performances in the said city. They were on their way back to the late musician’s Paisley Park estate.
Hill recalled sitting across Prince when he suddenly nodded off. She described how Prince’s “eyes fixed” just before he lost consciousness. The said incident transpired on April 15 where the late Prince’s plane had to make an emergency landing. She also described herself as “very freaked out” during the late Prince’s medical emergency. Hill even shared that she tried to wake the “Let’s Go Crazy” crooner but he was unresponsive.
“We knew it was only a matter of time; we had to get down. We didn’t have anything on the plane to help him,” she shared.
Upon arrival in Moline, Illinois’ airport, Prince was revived by paramedics with Narcan. The said drug is said to be used to treat opioid overdoses, as stated in the same report. He was then transported to Trinity Moline Hospital.
Hill also recounted how the late musician told her about him hearing voices during the incident and that he tried his best to follow the voices. The late prince also shared with Hill that he had a hard time going back to his body and had to “fight for [his] life.”
Meanwhile, following the musician’s death, there were some individuals, who claimed to be Prince’s lost child. Federal prisoner Carlin Williams was one of them. Williams claimed that his mother and Prince met in 1976 and that the singer got her pregnant. However, sources told TMZ that DNA testing has proven that Williams is not biologically related to the singer.
Prince died on April 21 due to an accidental overdose of a painkiller. He was 57.
