After performing the Friday prayer last week in Chicago, Ill., Saudi comedian actor Yousef Al-Jarrah suffered a heart attack, leading him to be immediately admitted to a hospital and placed in Ithe intensive care unit.
According to Sayidaty.net, Yousef had traveled to the "windy city" to attend a conference titled "Hawiat Mubtaith" (Identity of Foreign Students) attended by International students.
The actor's health is said to be gradually improving. Despite doctor's orders to remain under supervision in the hospital, the determined star released himself from the premises. It is unknown when he will be able to return to Saudi, according Alarbiya.net.
