PALM SPRINGS (CBSLA.com) — Dan Dotson, an auctioneer on A&E’s popular reality series “Storage Wars,” suffered a double brain aneurysm earlier this week.
“He looks at me and his eyes are rolled back in his head and his legs are going out and the color immediately went from like, he was real red and purple to, like, a bluish-green,” Dotson’s wife Laura said.READ MORE: 29-Year-Old Mesa Verde Man Faces Felony Arson Charges
Dotson was taken to Desert Regional Medical Center in Palm Springs, where he’s recovering.
“It is a miracle to be in a state that Danny is. Half of that is luck that he did not bleed significantly before coming to the hospital,” neurologist M. Asif Taqi said.

Laura visited Dotson in the intensive-care unit Friday night.
