Ivan Moody came to the aid of a fan attending a recent Five Finger Death Punch concert with a medical emergency.
Five Finger Death Punch performed in front of its fans again on Monday at a concert in Columbus, Ohio. However, fan reports and videos revealed that one of the concertgoers had a medical emergency.
In one of the now-viral videos, the member of Five Finger Death Punch asked the audience to give the fan some space while others tried to help her. Moody leaves the stage to get a blanket before embracing guitarist Zoltan Bathory after the performance.
The singer then jumped off the stage to assist the girl, reportedly having a seizure.
According to the YouTuber who posted the video:
“A fan started having a seizure during ‘Jekyll and Hyde.’ Ivan jumped off stage to help since people were putting the girl on her back instead of her side.”
Meanwhile, a fan posted another video on TikTok in which they expressed gratitude to the vocalist for assisting the girl who was seizing in the crowd.
Moody can be heard telling the crowd to back up and asking for a gurney in another video. He also persuaded her to be on her side while the girl had a seizure.
Fans who saw the video immediately praised Moody for saving and assisting the girl.
In other news, Moody sparked retirement rumors when he announced he would leave the band after the release of their next album.
He told fans at the October 14 concert that he missed spending time with his children and had decided to leave heavy metal soon to focus on his family.
But there will be no retirement anytime soon.
Moody apologized for his words in a video shared on YouTube (via Loudwire), saying that music is all he has. He also stated that if he quits now, his children may remain the same in the long run.
“I can’t quit. I can’t. I’m not. To be quite honest with you, I think I’d die. Maybe not physically die, but my soul would fucking definitely fade, and I didn’t come here for that. There is a fucking fire inside of me that will never go out.”
With that, it is safe to say that Moody will not retire soon.
