Description:In was November of 2008 when Chi Cheng was in the horrible car wreck that would eventually kill him. For five years he lingered in a minimally conscious state.
His band mates in the Sacramento based Deftones would go on to publish two more albums in that time. They would cheer along with his family and fans when Chi showed signs of recovery, like being able to move his own legs.
But this weekend the bassist’s heart gave out and he was rushed to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.(1:06)
