EXCLUSIVE: «Airwolf» star Jan-Michael Vincent tells how leg amputation nearly cost him his life

EXCLUSIVE: «Airwolf» star Jan-Michael Vincent has revealed the leg «amputation horror» that nearly cost him his life. The 69-year-old – who has battled drink and drugs – told the National Enquirer he found himself at «death’s door» when a medical crisis forced doctors to remove most of his right leg two years ago. The surgery resulted from complications of peripheral artery disease, Vincent told the Enquirer. He said: «An infection in my leg got steadily worse. I felt like I was beaten with a whip.» Vincent says he has «blocked out» the operation at Central Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson, added: «I know I was on life support and a ventilator. When I finally woke up [my leg] was gone.» His wife Anna said: «They said the infection was so bad that he might not survive.» Vincent has learned to walk again with a prosthetic limb, but at times is forced to use a wheelchair.
