    Pro bodybuilder Rich Piana was placed into a medically induced coma this week after suffering a medical emergency at his Florida home, law enforcement sources tell TMZ Sports.

    46-year-old Piana has competed and won several bodybuilding competitions over the years -- including Mr. California -- and has become an Instagram sensation, racking up more than 1 million followers.

    Law enforcement sources tell us ... emergency personnel responded to a possible overdose call at Piana's home on Monday afternoon. When they arrived, Piana was unresponsive and was transported to a nearby hospital where he was placed into a medically induced coma.

    Unclear how he's doing now. We're working on the story.

    You can hate the guy, but I don't think he has ever done anything that hurt anyone etc. He's not a bad guy, generally speaking, even if he gets a little stupid with some of his social media persona.

    I wish him well and hope he recovers. If he comes out of this, he is going to have quite a fight ahead of him and hope he has the support he needs. I'm not talking social media help either. REAL help. :(

    DDN sports just reported that he died.

    Edit: They retracted the message via twitter. Assholes -

    I've never been a personal fan, but in a howard stern type of way, I still watch his outlandish videos. Hope he recovers and has a better story to tell in the end.

    An overdose? I wonder whether this guy is taking recs...

    He's not my style, but I'd hate to see anything bad happen to the guy. Hopefully he'll pull through and use this as a "lesson learned."

    He's a character alright. Not a fan of him as a person, but of his antics I guess you could say. I hope it turns out okay for the big guy.

    Dude I would bet my last $ he does a metric TON of rec drugs lol
    Look at his face and eyes. You can see it clear as day. probably pills for pain that he really has and blow because he rich and the type. Guys like him do nothing lightly not work out, not juice and not rec drugs. Probably just did a bit to much to fast or the wrong combination of things.

    The worst part is that it makes joe blow think "look how bad steroids are"

    I like how it says PRO Bodybuilder....

    I too watch his videos sometimes...but lately it has turned into a shit show.

    I do wish him the best. He means well and offers his opinions on steroids and his kife experiences with it.

    He is a businessman and has made a good chunk of change off of YOUTUBE and his supplement/clothing line.

    He is a 'pro-something' but BB doesn't come to mind. Guy found his nitch and makes a good living at it. Worse people work for our city, state and federal government and collect pensions and benefits for life off the backs of those they screwed over.

    Nope, Rich isn't so bad after all.

    Bounce back Rich and get off the dope, doctor dope or not.
