Streamer Adriana Chechik collapses in two places after TwitchCon foam pit crash

The content creator apparently underwent surgery following the incident.

Updated 09/10/2022 7:28 PM EST: Details have emerged that reveal the Foam Pit was a collaboration between Intel and Levono, as opposed to a program set up by Twitch. What compensation, if any, those injured will receive remains unclear. Those using the foam pit were required to sign a waiver acknowledging the possibility of injury or property damage before entering. The foam pit was closed at noon on the day of the incident.

Popular content creator Adriana Chechik recently broke her back in two places after falling into a foam pit during the ongoing TwitchCon in San Diego, Calif. The incident was caught video and the streamer can be seen falling backwards before screaming in pain while seeking medical attention. Chechik later said she underwent surgery, including the installation of a meter rod.


“Well I broke my back in two places and am having surgery to put in a support meter rod today. Send your support,” Chechik posted on Twitter early this morning. “When it rains, it It’s pouring and I’m definitely feeling the rain right now.”

Chechik is apparently not the only person injured in the foam pit. Several streamers have since come forward to call the hazardous conditions, noting mostly minor injuries. The streamer known as EdyBot, for example, jumped into the foam pit just before Chechik.

“I am the other girl in the video and a friend of Adriana. She would like to hear from other people who have been injured in the same pit”, EdyBot said on Twitter in a remark suggesting the possibility of legal action. “Please message me if you know of anyone else who has been injured! I fell very lightly and still felt a jolt in my back and was in pain during the rest of the night.

The incident has already made the rounds on social media. “How do you respond to this other than with a lawyer and the expectation of a million more,” Reddit user as Annonymouss demand. “A fucking meter behind your back, man.” The vast majority of commentators are clearly furious.

Reception on Resetera has been just as negative as Reddit. “Even if his medical bills are fully reimbursed and then some, I’m not sure money can even fix everything. Serious back injuries are often life changing,” said user Sandcrawler. Noted. “How is almost everything Twitch touches always performed like a total clown show?”
