It’s only been a few months since the hip-hop community was devastated by the news of Takeoff’s untimely murder, and while many fans are finding solace in his musical legacy, as well as continuing to mourn this loss, life for another victim of that ill-fated night, Sydney Leday, is beginning to piece together her recovery.
24-year-old Houston native Sydney was present that Halloween night when an altercation occurred during a dice game, which ultimately claimed the life of the late Migos rapper Take. Exclusively speaking with KHOU 11, Leday, who had just celebrated her 24th birthday two nights prior to the shooting incident, explained how her survival was a “miracle.” Sydney shares that she tried to run when shots rang out, but she fell and felt a stinging in the back of her head. She knew that she had been shot but she managed to get down an escalator and into a friend’s car and to the closest hospital.
We are devastated at the passing of Takeoff. Per TMZ, Takeoff & Quavo were playing a dice game at a Houston bowling alley when an altercation broke out & someone opened fire.
