The Florida-based content creator, who is also a member of FaZe Clan, was engaged in a routine wood-chopping activity when he appeared to miss a piece of wood, causing the axe to strike his face instead. The incident, captured live, prompted immediate concern from viewers and the stream’s cameraman. YourRAGE, visibly in pain and distress, exclaimed, “I’m blind. I’m bleeding. I need a hospital! I need a hospital, bro!” When asked if he was serious, he urgently replied, “Yes, yes, yes… I lost my eye. I lost my eye! I promise you. I promise you! Ah! I’m not lying!”

The live stream was abruptly cut off with a message stating, “Connection lost, be back soon!” leaving viewers in shock and worry about the streamer’s condition.

Later in the day, updates about YourRAGE’s condition began circulating on social media. X user @rageupdates provided a grim report, stating that the streamer “couldn’t see out of his eye” and that there was “lots of blood.” They tweeted, “The only real update is – he can’t see out of his eye, lots of blood, no vision as of now.”
