Hollywood star Orlando Bloom is sharing a near-death experience of his life from 1988.
Th Lord of the Rings actor, 44, turned to his social media with a post that looked back at an accident he had in 1988 which almost left him dead.
The image posted by the Pirates of the Caribbean actor showed him wearing a back brace while on a bicycle. It was accompanied by a second picture of Bloom taken recently where he wore a cycling jersey, bike shorts and a helmet.
“That’s me in my back brace circa 1998 about 3months after I fell 3floors and crushed my spine, narrowly escaping death and paralysis…” wrote Bloom, adding; “grateful everyday for my limbs that allow me to push my limits and live life on my edge (safer now).”
