Chase Looney Eye Patch
Chase lost his eye on July 4, 2017 in a tragic accident days after filming the pilot episode of Fixer to Fabulous.
According to his blog, he was with his family and more than 50 people ready to enjoy the July 4th. ” Before the rain and storms hit we decided to light the large 3″ mortars. (for those unaware this is a 3″ ball of flaming American glory that blasts out of a small tube-like cannon around 80 miles per hour roughly 210 feet in the air.) I’ve played this over and over a million times in my head and the clearest memory I can gather in that fog was that after lighting the fourth mortar in a rush to beat the rain I quickly lit the fifth mortar. I believe the concussion from the fourth tube exploding tipped the fifth tube over after I had just lit it. Here’s where God has placed me. He needs me here at this exact moment, in this exact position, making this mistake. Standing directly in front of that mortar that had just tipped over. He has started his show.
When the explosion went off I remember everything stopped. There was a deafening boom, a burst of light, and in the chaos of that moment, everything around me slowed down. It was quiet. it was calm, and through the fog and smoke, everything became clear. I could see everyone enjoying the show, i could see my brother-in-law carrying a torch to light the next mortar. I could see everything but i felt nothing. I fell to my knees and then slowly to my stomach. This is when the puzzle came together and i realized what had just happened. I reached up and touched my face. I could feel the trauma and pulling back my hand I saw it was covered in blood. I remember the feeling and fear of blood rushing down my face and into my airway slowly cutting off my ability to breath. See here’s the funny thing about God.”
He underwent 8 hours of surgery but unfortunately, the doctors couldn’t save his eye and it was informed it would be removed.
“The following days in the hospital I was given the news that I lost my eye. That it would have to be removed. That I might not have movement in the left side of my face, and that the scarring would be permanent.”
