What happened to Dan from Storage Wars?

In 2014, Storage Wars auctioneer Dan Dotson suffered a double brain aneurysm.

He was hospitalised and recovered from surgery after collapsing in his home in June 2014.

His wife Laura Dotson saved his life by performing CPR and the pair have since become strong advocates for learning the vital technique.

Reportedly, Laura first learned CPR when she was a member of the girl scouts and Dan now credits her quick thinking with saving his life.

When he recovered, Dan made an important life decision to give up on smoking cigarettes after doing so for 40 years to reduce the risk of a repeat incident.
