Smith said on Twitter early Monday morning that if he hadn’t canceled his second show Sunday and gone to the hospital, he would have died. Smith credited a doctor with saving his life after the 47-year-old “Clerks” filmmaker suffered a total blockage of his left coronary artery, often referred to as “the widow maker.”

Smith posted a photo of himself lying in a hospital bed Monday morning looking stunned. He added: “For now, I’m still above ground.”
