OnlyFans model’s TikTok stripping heart attack horror
(Toronto Star) – An OnlyFans superstar shocked her thousands of followers when she suffered a heart attack while performing a striptease. Briatney Portillo, 20, was doffing her duds when she began sweating uncontrollably — one of the signs of a heart attack.
She believes it was triggered when she tried a TikTok craze where people consume a spoonful of workout powder without water called “dry scooping,” the Daily Star reports.
Portillo told Buzzfeed she took part in the TikTok trend earlier in the day. She was rushed to hospital wearing only a bikini.
“Dry scooping” supposedly boosts the energizing effects of a workout at the gym, the Daily Star reports.
“After I took the pre-workout, I started to feel tingly and itchy all over my body, which wasn’t a good feeling, but I Googled it and it said that was a normal side effect,” Portillo said.
“So I began to do my workout. I started to feel a heavy feeling in my chest and slight pain, but it wasn’t too bad. I thought it was maybe anxiety or a bad panic attack, so I decided to just ignore it and push through my workout.”
She added that when she began her striptease: “I started sweating a lot and was drenched even though I was wearing a bikini. Then my chest pain came back and this time it was more intense. The pain went to my back and to my left arm and my left arm went slightly limp, so I knew those were symptoms of a heart attack.”
That’s when she stopped stripping and called an ambulance. Initially, medical personnel couldn’t believe it was a heart attack because the dancer is just 20.
But they found she had high troponin levels indicating that while Portillo was stripping, she was likely having a heart attack.
Happily, she suffered no long-term damage.
