Jason Derulo 'Lucky To Be Alive' After Fracturing Neck
The It Girl star says he could have died after injuring himself in rehearsals...
Jason Derulohas revealed he's lucky to be alive after fracturing his neck last week, stating the majority of people who suffer the injury either die or are left paralysed.
As we previously reported, the Ridin' Solo hitmaker was forced to cancel his worldwide tour after suffering an acute fracture of his vertebra when an acrobatic move went horribly wrong in rehearsals.
Derulo, who has been ordered to wear a neckbrace following his accident, has since taken to Facebook to explain how serious his injury is, telling fans he's fortunate to have survived.
The 22-year old wrote: "My injury is called a 'Hang Man's Break' because it is the same bone that is broken when someone is hung (sic)! I am so blessed to still be here! 95 per cent of ppl (people) with the same injury end up paralysed or gone.
"Everything happens for a reason. Traumatic experiences can change you for the better. My outlook on life is so much clearer!
The R&B star added: "Don't forget what's important. Life is short so do it today, tomorrow could be a day too late!"
