But when I showed up and saw him lying there, and they told me they were admitting him to ICU with a collapsed lung, my heart dropped. My biggest fear had come true."

However, after the recent incident, Tori revealed that her husband decided to get rid of his bikes and never ride again.

"When I first saw him he just softly said 'I'm so sorry'," Tori said. "I just held his hand and cried. That's when he said, 'I'll never do this again. You and the kids mean everything to me'." Meanwhile, on Thursday, July 1, Dean tweeted about his condition, "Thanks for the well wishes. A collapsed lung is no fun, and is a lengthy heal. Feeling pretty bad today. Day 2 is always the worst."
