Russell on Survivor SamoaDon't ever take 'Survivor' for granted. The Oct. 22 episode of 'Survivor: Samoa' marks one of the few times in the show's nine-year history that production was halted for a medical emergency. (One of the most famous incidents: In season 2, Michael Skupin was evacuated by chopper after falling into a campfire.)

In a CBS TV ad for the episode, dreadlocked Pennsylvania attorney Russell Swan appears to faint while carrying a huge purple maze (you read that right -- he's carrying a maze), then hits the sand after whacking his head.

Host Jeff Probst's voiceover tells us, "[In] 19 seasons, it was the scariest moment I've ever had on this show," and the preview shows the lawyer receiving medical attention while his fellow castaways attempt to revive him.Russell on Survivor SamoaDon't ever take 'Survivor' for granted.

On his Twitter, @russkid, Russell wrote, "almost died doing that Survivor crap. Stay Hydrated homey. Almost learned the hard way!" So presumably he ends up (forgive us) surviving the accident -- as for what "almost died" means, we'll just have to watch to find out.
