What makes this tragic event more serious is that when Eddie eventually wanted to start some rehab, he went to the gym where he got injured and was not allowed entry.
According to his latest post, Eddie has a electronic key so that he can access the gym at any time of the day, but in the last two weeks, according to Eddie, the key was disabled.
Eddie just wanted to enter the gym to start some rehab and collect the personal items he left there on the day of the accident.
Eddie left a post (29 December, 2018) that describes in detail of what happened when he tried entering the gym:
