Authorities discovered 20 bottles of steroids in the home of professional bodybuilder, Rich Piana, following his medical emergency.
According to TMZ, Piana collapsed and hit his head. His girlfriend, Chanel Jenson, was home at the time of the incident. Moreover, sources say that Jenson administered CPR on Piana, as instructed by the 911 operator.
Once first responders arrived to the home, they reportedly noticed crushed up white powder on a table, along with a credit card and straw, just before deciding to give Piana two doses of Narcan (often used to treat opiate overdoses) to try and revive him.
In addition to the paramedics discovery, Chanel informed the first responders of his battle with opiates in the past. However, she believed he was clean. Jenson also revealed that he was an admitted steroid user who’s been juicing for more than 20 years. Upon further investigation of the home, police reportedly found 20 bottles of testosterone.

In addition to his addictions, Chanel also noted that he had suffered from a slightly enlarged heart at one point in his life — but didn’t know if that contributed to the medical emergency.
After first responders were unable to revive him, the bodybuilding star was transported a local hospital were he was placed into a medically induced coma.
Chanel has stated that he is still alive and requests that everyone send their prayers up.
Piana was crowned “Mr. California” and gained over 1 million followers via Instagram with his pumped up photos and videos. Moreover, he has trained with some high profile celebs such as “Mountain” from HBO’s Game Of Thrones.
