Fursuiter falls 4 stories from con hotel balcony
« on: August 08, 2016, 03:23:30 am »
Just hours after Orlando's furry con Megaplex wrapped up, a fursuiter named Rocko the Fox is reported to have fallen four stories (Some report it was seven stories) off a hotel balcony, seriously injuring himself.

Relevant tweets:
Someone just fell from unknown height in #MPlex2016 hotel and is hurt
Likely fell from 4th floor. Hurt real bad. Rescue services on scene #MPlex2016
Rocko fox just fell off the balcony . his shoulder is dislocated . he should be ok but that was scary !

Rocko's Twitter profile has some insight as to how this happened:
Quote
Fursuiter/Musician/Professional Derp. In a loving relationship with @Alcohol

About 4 hours before he fell off the balcony, he tweeted:
I'm fucked uppppppppp!!!!!!!!! <3 <3 <3

Ha ha, isn't alcoholism funny!!!

Secondhand from private chat. "He landed legs first in a padded booth in the hotel restaurant," if it's true I hope he recovers, we were going to hook up.

It wasn't just alcohol he was on. Some sort of drug(s) were involved too.



Apparently he will recover in a year.

This tweet implies they made the jump while wearing it, so thats actually possible.

"He says everything below his neck hurts. Somehow avoided a concussion. I'm wondering if wearing a fursuit head saved @RockoTheFox's life."

We tried, we failed.

the suit, if it was a decent one, would have been about ~$2000
the ambulance ride alone on the other hand will come out to about 10x that with obamacare bronze

Apparently he was only wearing the arm sleeves at most.

@itsdrenthe @RockoTheFox He was not wearing a fursuit at the time; just fuzzy arm sleeves.

Anyway, man, he tried to off himself at a furry con. I really just can't bring myself to laugh at him. I truly hope he gets the mental and physical help he needs. It sounds like he has some addiction issues that need to be addressed, given the catalyst for this and all of his drunken (and sometimes indignant) Tweets just before.
