Bummer News--Austin Edition


(image via gingersmurf on photobucket)

Your humble Felt Up blogette just found out that Leslie Cochran, local legendary homelss thong afficianado and bon vivant, has been in the hospital since October 3, when he collapsed in the street. According to KXAN:
Austin's own local celebrity, Leslie Cochran, collapsed on Oct. 3 and, according to sources, was still at University Medical Center Brackenridge with injuries, Friday.

EMS officials said an ambulance was called to the scene after a witness saw Leslie acting oddly on the sidewalk. The call came in around 12:50 a.m. on Oct. 3. Leslie then fell in front of a taxi. When EMS arrived on the scene, medics say he was already unconscious.

EMS called ahead for a trauma team to meet Leslie when he arrived at Brackenridge Hospital. Officials at the hospital declined to confirm he was there, citing rules against official release of information; but two sources close to the hospital have confirmed he was still there on Friday.

A woman who said she was a good friend of Leslie said she tried to see him Monday, but hospital officials would not let her see him.

When asked Friday during a telephone interview if she knew whether or not Leslie was still unconscious, the woman, who wished to remain anonymous, replied, "He would have called me had he woken up...."

Leslie, 58, is "arguably the most locally famous street person in Austin" according to his Wikipedia article. He is often seen downtown wearing women's clothing, and has run for mayor. He is a staunch advocate for the rights of homeless people.

It's not uncommon for folks visiting downtown to approach Leslie for photographs with the scantily clad man. He almost always obliges.

Leslie is so popular, he even has his own line of dress-up refrigerator magnets that can be purchased at stores across Austin. The paper-doll-style magnet set includes a mini-skirt, a cheerleader outfit and leopard print dress, with accessories, that you can use to dress up the Austin icon.

There is also this ominous sentence at the end of his Wikipedia entry:
It is believed that Leslie suffered a stroke and may be in a "vegetative state."
I fervently hope that Leslie makes a full recovery. Austin just wouldn't be the same without him!

Oh my gosh! This makes me so sad. I don't know why, but I really liked having him around. I remember when I went to Jennifer Gayle's coldest day of the year memorial service, he was there in a mini skirt and his legs were absolutely blue. The dude is a fighter! My prayers are with him.
