Chanel Champagne

UPDATE:

Liquid Zoo owner Nell Scarborough was at the hospital with drag performer Chanel Champagne and reported surgery went well.

Chanel was a passenger in a car involved in an accident on Feb. 7 in Denison. The car hit a patch of black ice, hit a wall, bounced off the wall and hit an 18-wheeler. The car ended up facing oncoming traffic on the highway.

“He got to his room around 10:30 last night,” Scarborough said. “He was in great spirits when I left around 11. He will be in the hospital about a week and the recovery has begun.”

Chanel lost a finger, has a broken clavicle, fractured ribs and an arm broken in two places.

Liquid Zoo has a jug set up at the bar taking donations to help pay his bills. Several benefits are planned or in the planning stage. The first will be at the Round-Up Saloon on Feb. 25. Onyx is putting one together at Liquid Zoo and Blake is working on one for Marty’s Live.
