Orville Burke
On November 5 of 2002, Orville Burke, 6th place finisher at the 2001 Mr. Olympia and 9th place finisher at the 2002 Mr. Olympia competitions underwent surgery to repair a triceps injury which he suffered during a photo shoot for FLEX magazine. While under anesthetic, Orville experienced a seizure and went into a coma. From there, he was placed on life support machines.
Presently, Orville is feeling better and able to talk and walk. However, a career in competitive bodybuilding is now out of the question. He will be missed by those who follow the sport of bodybuilding. Orville was known as "The Walking Eclipse" and had one of the most impressive waist to shoulder ratio in the history of bodybuilding.
