Harper posted a pic of himself in the hospital and wrote on Instagram, "I am feeling better. Just taking it easy. KARL has been a great nurse. I want to thank everyone for the outpouring of messages and support. It feels good to be cared about. I've been home for 8 days now. Again, THANK YOU SO MUCH!! I'm lucky to have such good friends and family to take care of me right now. ❤ .”

The next day, Harper went shirtless to show his heart monitors, writing, "On the road to recovery. I'm required to wear these monitors to see what my heart is doing throughout the day. I feel like a robot from WESTWORLD thank you all for your kindness. You have no idea how much it helps. ❤❤."

TMZ reports that Harper collapsed in an NYC gym during a workout, but received life-saving CPR from a doctor who was present. Harper was taken to a hospital and did not regain consciousness until two days later.

The otherwise extremely fit Harper has said that his heart attack was the result of genetics — his mother passed away from a heart attack.
