I am in absolutely devastated and shocked with the news about the sudden death of my dear friend and athlete @fhf13 Fahd Al-Hazzazi. I was praying that news are not correct, as it happened already once few months ago…when he was implemented in the hospital due to Epileptic Seizures. His wife brought him to the hospital unconscious. I got numerous messages about an hour ago…but I didn’t want to believe it. His nephew unfortunately confirmed 😔. Fahd was without a doubt one of the nicest guys I’ve met…Super passionate about bodybuilding and needless to say absolute physique phenomenon. He posted a segment from his training about 6 hours ago…and I heard from the guys that saw him training today. Nobody noticed anything! Cause of death is unknown as of yet, but there is speculation of known “SUDEP” (Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy). May he Rest In Piece 🙏🏻 and Good Bless his soul. ❤️ Condolences to his family, friends, fans, Countrymen and all the loved ones.
