"It's overwhelmingly humbling. It's remarkably uplifting. I'm fortunate to be on this side of the earth. My care has just been absolutely top-shelf."
- HHCA tennis coach Eric Wammock
After ventricular fibrillation caused him to collapse and hit his head during a concert two weeks ago, Eric Wammock, Hilton Head Christian Academy's tennis coach, has returned home and is recovering.
Wammock said he doesn't remember any of the night when he collapsed at Corks in Bluffton while playing a gig with his band.
Never miss a local story.
"I'm a little bit of a fog, but not horrible, all things considered," Wammock said. "It's essentially a heart attack. Luckily, there were some nurses there who started CPR right away. I remember nothing about that day, and I don't remember the next couple of days."
Wammock's recovery has been nothing short of miraculous since that night. He said he's thankful for the support and well wishes he has gotten from the community.
"It's overwhelmingly humbling. It's remarkably uplifting," Wammock said. "I'm fortunate to be on this side of the earth. My care has just been absolutely top-shelf."
There is no timetable yet for a return to the tennis courts. Wammock works at Hilton Head Island Beach and Tennis and is a participant in the island's Pro League Tennis. Getting back to the grind all depends on how well his recovery goes.
"It's pretty miraculous that he's with us," Wammock's wife, Sheri, said. "The support of the community for him has been overwhelming, to be honest. It's all helped us to be able to get through."
