Preston From The Ordinary Boys Fell Off A Balcony And Broke Half Of His Body
In the grand scheme of weeks, Preston from The Ordinary Boys has had a fairly terrible one. And by that, we mean he’s literally lucky to be alive.
Songwriter Samuel Preston took to Instagram on Tuesday to reveal that his holiday in Denmark had taken a very abrupt nosedive, after he fell off a second floor balcony and somehow survived to tell the tale.
While Preston is probably now counting his blessings, he has also broken basically half of his body, which isn’t ideal.
Posting a photo of himself looking worse for wear in a wheelchair, along with girlfriend Emily who’d flown out to see him, Preston revealed the full list of his new broken bone collection.
That includes a leg broken in four places, a broken pelvis, broken hip, broken foot, broken ribs, broken shoulder blade, a punctured lung and a completely smashed-up left hand.
Oww is probably the understatement of the century.
Using the disaster to spread an important message, Preston wrote: “I know a wise man once said ‘boys will be boys’ but seriously I drank too much and was careless and please don’t abuse your privileges.
“I think I’m going to do the next 30 years sober,” he added.
Small reminder that booze and balconies aren't a great combo, kids.
