In a raw vlog recently uploaded on the YouTube channel she shares with her sister, Jai Agpangan opens up about a near-death experience she had during Christmas 2020.

According to the former Pinoy Big Brother housemate, she had been in a coma for three days beginning on December 24, 2020. It started on Christmas Eve when Jai suddenly experienced swelling in her ears which turned out to be an infection. While the reason for the swelling is unknown, Jai thinks it might be because of her piercings.

Aside from the swelling, other symptoms she experienced were vomiting and difficulty in breathing. After a while, Jai was later on told by her family that she had passed out at that point already. She also started peeing and having seizures. 

According to her doctor, Jai seemed to have had several complications. She underwent lumbar puncture to test for meningitis, which is the inflammation of the meninges (the membranes covering the brain and spinal cord). Her doctor also mentioned tetanus, an infectious bacterial disease often contracted through a wound and causes body spasms and stiffness in jaw muscles, as well as sepsis, the potentially fatal response of the immune system resulting from an infection marked by fever, chills, and rapid breathing, among other signs. The exact cause of Jai's condition, however, remains unknown.

Jai is now recovering despite still being in pain from the lumbar tap procedure and from bruises incurred from all the needles injected into her. She's very thankful for her family for being her support system throughout her serious and life-threatening experience. "Grabe, hindi ko 'to makakayanan, almost half-dead na ako sabi ng sister ko and I was so scared," Jai shares in her emotional tell-all.
