YouTube diver who has searched San Antonio and the Comal rivers for treasure is battling serious case of COVID
YouTube dive sensation Brandon Jordan says he was on the verge of death after a battle with COVID-19 that took him to hospital.
Jordan is best known for his YouTube channel and social media series titled “Jiggin ‘With Jordan”, where he and his team in search of treasures and valuables in some of the most beautiful rivers and bodies of water in the world.
Jordan recently dived and explored the waters of the San Antonio River near the River Walk and the Comal River in New Braunfels, and called these adventures a great experience. In a recent interview, Jordan told KSAT-12 that he enjoys diving in the rivers of the South Texas area and that he plans to return.
He has discussed these trips on the San Antonio and Comal rivers in the videos below.
But all dive plans or immediate trips were put on hold after Jordan announced Thursday on Instagram he has tested positive for COVID-19 and is battling a severe case of the virus.
Jordan wrote that “for the last few weeks I have been fighting for what was like my life against this insane disease. This is the closest I have ever felt to death and thanks to some trial medication and the big man upstairs listening to all of my family’s prayers I’m happy to say today that I eventually tested negative.
Jordan apologized for the lack of uploads to his YouTube channel and the silence on his social media platforms, writing that he had “called a monster”. He said he was slowly coming back to normal, but “barely made it.”
“Most people just lose their smell and I almost lost my lungs. I love you all. Stay safe there, my homies, ”Jordan posted.
