Surfer Sunny Garcia is in a critical condition after he allegedly attempted to kill self in Oregon on Monday.

The World Surf League confirmed the news and tweeted, “With heavy hearts we confirm that Sunny Garcia is in the ICU in the hospital. Sunny has always been a great champion of surfing, both in and out of the water. Our prayers are with him and his loved ones at this deeply challenging time.”

According to reports, the 49-year-old American professional surfer attempted to kill self by hanging and was rushed to the Portland-area medical center.

The world champion revealed in 2014 that he was suffering from depression.

“Depression is no joke. Waking up feeling like you’re ready to take on the world, then a couple of hours later, feeling down on life and wondering what’s wrong with you. Well, I know I’m not alone and I’m not sure what’s wrong with me because I have no reason to feel the way I do and it’s been happening for about two years. I would love to hear from any of you who suffer these feelings so I can figure out what I should do,” he wrote in an Instagram post.

While details related to his health condition is still emerging, several people took to Twitter to send their prayers to his family.

Some reports, however, suggested that Garcia is dead. There was no official confirmation regarding the same.
