Raz B found himself in a mess of trouble when he tried to break up a fight that erupted in a bar that Raz was performing at, in China. The singer tried breaking up the fight and wound up getting hit in the face with a glass bottle, hard.

When police arrived at the scene, they took both Raz and the guy who clocked him into the station for questioning. After getting all the details, police freed Raz and transported him to a local hospital.

B had to undergo minor surgery and was stitched up at the hospital and released. Everything seemed to be going great until Friday morning.

He was found unconscious the next morning by his back-up dancer, who rushed the 28-year-old singer to the hospital.

Raz was determined to be in a coma and was immediately put on life support. On Sunday, 48 hours after going on life support, he emerged from his coma.

The star is capable of breathing on his own, however, he is still going to be hospitalized for several more days. Doctors, we are told, need more time to evaluate the performer before releasing him.
