A DANCER claims she sparked a major medical scare when she turned up at hospital’s walk-in emergency unit wearing horrific Zombie make up.
Jai Fears said she checked into Michigan’s Beaumont Royal Oak Hospital after suffering a panic attack while preparing for a Halloween photoshoot.

However, she then claims her shocking Walking Dead look was mistaken for a genuine medical emergency and she began being prepped to enter the trauma unit.
“(They said) ‘Let’s get her back to trauma now,’ and ‘She’s probably going into shock, she’s not making any sense,’” Fears told Fox News.
When asked her why she didn’t tell the medics her horror wounds were fake she answered they should have known.
“So no, I did not say anything because I just assumed they could see that it was fake,” she said.
Fears revealed the incredibly realistic make up took three hours to apply and shortly afterwards she had a reaction sparking her anxiety attack.
“It just shot up to my brain and it just caused like a really bad reaction,” she said.
“We were getting ready to do a photo shoot to do some marketing for Glam Gore for people who want to get their make up done for the Halloween season.”
The hospital told Fox it could not comment on Fears’ case specifically, but did release a statement.
“The emergency room is not a place for fun and games,” a spokesperson told the news outlet.

“They see many patients with severe medical issues where lives are at stake. Doctors need to be able to focus on those patients with true emergencies.”
In a follow-up post on Facebook Fears emphasised that while the reaction was humorous, anxiety is not.
“Let me please say anxiety is no joke or laughing matter,” she wrote. “It was a serious situation that happened at a strange time.”
