The fitness industry has evolved into a gigantic platform in recent years. With the rise of social media, many athletes and fitness icons have gained fame and followers as they become their own personal brands.

Sadly, it does not always end well for the athletes. A bodybuilding champion, who was only 39 years old, has tragically just passed away.

According to reports, Darren Vernon, aged just 39, had been admitted to hospital with the deadly infection after complaining of stomach cramps and fever. He soon died of sepsis.

Apparently, Darren had a secret addiction to drugs and had been using cocaine and fentanyl privately. However, he never informed the medical professionals when asked about drug use.

"Mr. Vernon's condition deteriorated and he died six hours later with doctors subsequently discovering he had traces of cocaine in his system which caused bacteria to poison his bloodstream. His family knew nothing of his drug taking," reported the Mirror.

Please join us in praying for his family as they endure this tragic time. Also, if you or someone you know is taking drugs, please join us in prayer to break the chains of addiction.
