NEW YORK, NY - Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman accidentally choked himself following his team's victory over the Denver Broncos in Superbowl XLVIII.
On the Broncos last drive, Sherman deflected Bronco quarterback, Peyton Manning's pass to Wes Welker in the end zone. The ball was intercepted by Sherman's teammate, Malcolm Smith.
After making the incredible play to tip the pass, Sherman fondled Wes Welker's groin area and then accidentally choked himself, mocking Peyton Manning.
Mr Sherman was rushed to Meadowlands Hospital Medical Center. Later that evening, Mr. Sherman's spouse, Anita Mandalay-Sherman announced that she was terminating life-support even though the medical staff indicated that Mr. Sherman would recover from his self-inflicted injury.
