SBS‘s Access Showbiz Tonight recently reported about Goo Hara‘s suicide attempt and revealed an interview with one of the paramedics who transferred her to the hospital.
The paramedic stated in the interview that Goo Hara was still breathing but unconscious when they arrived.
We received a report due to smoke poisoning. The manager had already brought the patient outside of the house and she was lying in front of the front door. She was still breathing and had a pulse but she was unresponsive to pain. We gave first aid and immediately transferred her to the hospital after.
Another fireman who arrived later to clean up the traces of the fire stated that they ventilated the home and sprayed water to remove the smoke from her home.
It seemed like there was some smoke so we opened the windows to ventilate and sprayed water. When we got there, there wasn’t a severe amount of smoke.
Meanwhile, Goo Hara has regained consciousness and is currently recovering. She has since reached out to her fans through a Japanese press and apologized for worrying her fans.
I’m very sorry to have caused you worry and distress. I am currently recovering.
I was suffering as various situations happened around the same time. I’m so sorry. I will do my best to show a more dependable and healthier side to myself.
I’m very sorry about what happened.
— Goo Hara
