TOP STORY: Beth Chapman Put Into a Medically Induced Coma

According to TMZ, Duane “Dog” Chapman’s wife Beth was rushed to the hospital after she started choking, and is currently in a medically-induced coma after suffering what’s being called a choking emergency. She had been having trouble breathing as a result of her throat cancer, which has been an ongoing ailment since she was first diagnosed in September 2017.

Chapman remains in the ICU at the Queen’s Medical Center, which is located in Honolulu, Hawaii, not too far from her home. According to the report, Beth, 51, is in “desperate shape.” She went through a similar emergency situation back in April but was able to come out the other side.

With the clue reading “In Central Intelligence, Dwayne teamed up to catch a spy with this actor of smaller stature…”

The answer was “Kevin Hart,” who then commented on the Instagram post, “Smaller stature WTF does the mean… Jesus Christ man.”
