PALM SPRINGS, Calif., June 20 (UPI) -- Dan Dotson is critical condition following a medical emergency earlier this week.

The Storage Wars auctioneer had a double brain aneurysm Monday morning. His wife, Laura Dotson, tells TMZ that Dan woke up at 1 a.m. asking strange questions in his sleep. When he woke up several hours later, he companied of double vision and not feeling well. He went back to sleep, and collapsed after he got up to take a shower.

A 911 operator guided Laura to administer CPR after her husband turned blue. He was rushed to a Palm Springs hospital, where doctors discovered one aneurysm behind his eye and another in his neck the size of an apricot. He was given a 4 to 20 percent chance of survival.

Dan underwent a successful surgery on Tuesday afternoon. He is still in serious condition, but is doing better than expected.
