Marc Lamont Hill is recuperating after suffering a mild heart attack and blood clots in his lungs.

The author, professor, and TV personality suffered a mild heart attack following surgery on his achilles on Friday.

Hill, who is fully vaccinated, was rushed to Temple University Hospital in Philadelphia when he suffered a heart attack.

Hill was diagnosed with deep vein thrombosis (DVT) in his leg, which caused a pulmonary embolism to travel to his lung, preventing blood flow to his heart.

“The doctors told me that I was VERY lucky not to have died,” wrote Hill, who teaches media studies and urban education at Temple University.

He took to Twitter to update his followers on his medical condition.

“After my successful Achilles surgery on Friday, I was rushed to the ER on Saturday after suffering a mild heart attack. Over the previous two weeks, I had DVT (deep vein thrombosis), which was caused by my Achilles rupture. This is an extremely common outcome for such injuries.”

Hill also dismissed “anti-vaxers” who blamed his blood clots on the vaccines.

“I’m seeing videos and tweets from anti-vaxers saying that I developed blood clots from the vaccine. This is ridiculous and completely baseless. For some, it is a cynical and dishonest claim. For others, it’s a lack of understanding of how medicine and science work.”
