Kylie Jenner Had a Health Scare in South America
While visiting Lima, Peru as part of her work with Smile Train, a non-profit org that works with children born with cleft lips or palates, the reality star began to have troubles breathing. She was suffering from what appeared to be altitude sickness, and a doctor was called to help with the situation.
Of course, the entire sitch was caught on Snapchat where fans could see Jenner getting oxygen from a tank while the medical professional said, “At this altitude of 11,000 feet above sea level, you can feel nauseous, have headaches — feel like you’re having the worst hangover ever.” Ugh! That sounds nasty. However, he was sure to add, “Kylie’s getting oxygen so she’ll feel better.”
Hopefully Jenner adjusts to the altitude while she’s still able to enjoy her trip and continue her important work (as of now, she’s apparently raised $500,000, resulting in thousands of surgeries for children — well done, Kylie!).
Have you ever suffered from altitude sickness? Let us know @BritandCo!
