Maddy Audet Wiki – Maddy Audet Biography
Maddy Audet is a New Hampshire woman who is paralyzed from the waist down after a man allegedly attacked her — and knocked her out — over a drink at a Pitbull concert, relatives and police said.
Audet was dancing with friends during Sunday’s show at the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion in Gilford when a man “walked up to her and hit her so hard” that she was knocked unconscious, according to an online fundraiser set up by her brother.
“All because this coward thought she took his drink,” the website reads. “Maddy is now in the hospital without any feeling or movement below her waist.”
She is 22 years old.
Maddy Audet Statement
Audet, of Keene, told the Boston Globe she overheard a woman accuse one of her sister’s roommates of stealing a drink just three songs into the rap star’s performance during his “I Feel Good” tour with rapper Iggy Azalea.
Audet said she then offered to buy a new beverage in an attempt to defuse the situation.
“I went in between them and said, ‘Hey, it’s not a big deal, we’ll buy her another drink,’” Audet told the newspaper from her hospital bed Thursday. “Apparently this guy didn’t like what I said.”
Audet’s alleged attacker then hopped over three seats and punched her with an uppercut, instantly knocking her out, she recalled.

“He punched me right under the jaw,” Audet continued. “I flew back about 5 feet … it was like I was in one of those superhero movies.”
Witnesses later told Audet she was attacked again after being brutally knocked out.
“There was a girl on top of me, whaling me in the head four or five times,” she told the Globe from Concord Hospital ahead of a planned transfer Thursday to Tufts Medical Center in Boston.
“Right now I can’t feel anything from the waist down,” said Audet, an aspiring orthopedic veterinary surgeon who graduated from Keene State College in May.
Supporters had raised more than $6,000 through a GoFundMe account by Wednesday night to help Audet cover her medical bills.
