In her comeback Twitch stream, Adriana Chechik details her back surgery, recovery, and finding out about her pregnancy at the hospital.


Adriana Chechik made her Twitch comeback and talked about her recent back surgery, including finding out that she was pregnant before the procedure. The Twitch streamer broke her back in two places after jumping off a pedestal into a poorly padded foam pit during TwitchCon San Diego. She had to get metal support rods inserted to her back to correct the injury.


TwitchCon is an annual convention that serves a physical platform for Twitch streamers to connect with their viewers, as well as attend pocket events to learn about how to improve their content. The event also has sponsored booths where attendees can partake in various activities and win prizes. The infamous foam pit run by Lenovo and Intel was one of them, where they hosted a Face-Off challenge that requires participants to knock each other off a pedestal in the middle of a foam pit.

During her comeback Twitch stream, she talked about her surgery and ongoing recovery, even showing viewers the big scar on her spine. In the past, she posted videos of herself undergoing physical therapy on social media. Chechik also shared that she found out she was pregnant when she got to the hospital, but couldn’t keep the baby because of the back surgery she had to undergo.

Chechik didn’t mention whether she filed a lawsuit against the parties responsible for her injury. But she mentioned on the stream that nobody from the TwitchCon venue had reached out to her after the incident. For now, she’s focused on recovering and slowly going back to streaming without her wearing her back out from sitting too long.

Chechik was not the only casualty from the foam pit. Streamer LochVaness dislocated her knee and sprained her ankle when she jumped off the podium after the Face-Off challenge. Some bystanders also witnessed other injured attendees next to the foam pit. Lenovo said in a previous statement that it was aware of the injuries sustained during the Face-Off challenge, and that it was working with TwitchCon organizers to look into the incidents.

What happened at TwitchCon and the reported inaction of Twitch after the fact could be seen as a terrible case of negligence for the streaming platform. Avid Twitch viewers have criticized the platform for not addressing Chechik’s situation and the other issues that arose from TwitchCon. Hopefully, Twitch learns from the incidents and implements tighter security and safety protocols for all the booths to avoid serious injuries in future events.
